Charcuterie (pronounced :shahr-ku-tuh-ree”) is essentially a collection of techniques that in one
way or another seek to limit food spoilage.
Smoked, Cured or Cooked meats are all traditional methods of
preservation. The Boardhas become a popular backdrop
to highlight a carefully curated selection of the cured meats often used when
entertaining friends and family. Beyond
meat, the board has evolved to display everything from favorite cheeses, breads,
fruits & vegetables and specialty dishes to anything else someone’s
creativity can envision.
Our particular boards come from sturdy and vibrant cherry tree pruning cuts. Nurtured over many years with love and devotion, the wood grows to be unique and beautiful in it’s own right. Cut, honed & polished by hand, each board is developed further into distinctive art.
Cherry pits can be used for filling a variety of toys and crafts. Any bean or rice filled craft project can be created instead with clean, dry cherry pits. Cherry pits also possess unique properties that make them ideal filling for hot or cold pads. Cherry pits have three times the heating capacity and heat retention properties of chemicals. Heating pads filled with cherry pits can be warmed in the microwave or kept in the freezer and function as cold packs.
