Creating a well-balanced cheese and charcuterie board is a skill that combines flavors, textures, and aesthetics. While the selection of cheeses and cured meats is undoubtedly the foundation, it’s the accompanying accoutrements that can take your board to the next level. Here are a few of our favorites from the Clif Family pantry.
Solar Grown™ Hibiscus Honey
Honey is a classic pairing with cheese, and when infused with the delicate floral notes of dried hibiscus flowers, it becomes a vibrant and colorful addition to your cheese plate. The vibrant pink hue of our Solar Grown™ Honey with Desert Hibiscus not only adds a pop of color to your board but also offers a subtle tanginess that balances the richness of cheeses and cured meats. Drizzle it over creamy brie or our favorite, tangy goat cheese!
Rosé Wine Jelly
Wine jelly is a fun addition to any cheese board, especially when accompanied by a glass of wine! The sweet and slightly acidic notes of Clif Family’s Rosé Wine Jelly complement a wide range of cheeses, from soft and creamy to hard and nutty varieties.
Smoked Spanish Pimenton Almonds
The smoky undertones of Clif Family’s Organic Smoked Spanish Pimenton Almonds pair deliciously with the flavors of aged cheeses and cured meats. Adding savory nut mixes to your boards offers unique texture, crunch, and flavor!
Solar Grown™ Hot Honey
Add a playful kick to your cheese and charcuterie board with a drizzle of Clif Family’s Solar Grown™ Hot Honey with Cobanero Chili. The sweet and spicy combination of honey and chili peppers enhances the flavors of both mild and bold cheeses. Hot honey provides a dynamic flavor profile that wakes up the taste buds, making it a conversation starter and a favorite among those who appreciate a touch of heat.
Meyer Lemon Marmalade
To cleanse the palate and introduce a burst of citrusy brightness, Clif Family’s Organic Meyer Lemon Marmalade is a great choice. The zesty notes of Meyer lemons cut through the richness of cheeses and charcuterie, offering a refreshing palate cleanse between bites. This marmalade pairs beautifully with both goat cheese and cured meats.
