Christmas Charcuterie Board
Charcuterie is the art of preparing meat products such as bacon, salami, ham, and sausage and it’s suddenly all the rage.
Use seasonal produce whenever possible. This keeps the cost down and the taste fresher! Pears, citrus, and pomegranates are winter fruits and they match the Christmas theme, plus they are delicious! Grapes aren’t in season, but have a beautiful green color.
Also great for Thanksgiving and whenever family and friends visit. I like to set my charcuterie board out whenever we gather as a family to watch TV or play games.
Homemade Spiced Cider – for the kids
Great for warming up while you’re freezing during the holiday parade.
- 1 gallon apple juice
- 1/4 cup honey
- 6 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate
- 1 tbsp whole cloves
- 4 whole cinnamon sticks
- 1 tsp ground allspice
Directions: Mix all ingredients together in a large pot. Bring to a low simmer and cook for 15 minutes. Using a sieve or slotted spoon, lift out the whole cloves and discard. Serve warm with slices of fresh apples.
Cranberry Princess – for the grown-ups
A perfect drink for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
