18 May Charcuterie, What Does That Mean?
Char-cu-te-rie: It’s a big trendy word that you hear all the time these days. An old paper dictionary I have, gives the definition of Charcuterie as the Craft of salting, smoking and curing meats. A newer version found on the internet gives the definition as cold cooked or cured meats.
Broadbent’s would definitely qualify as the makers of Charcuterie. We dry cure our hams and bacon with a salt mixture. Then we age and smoke our hams and bacon. The process creates very bold flavors.
Charcuterie boards have become all the rage. Slices from our Heritage Ham are perfect for prosciutto like slices or use our Pre-Cooked Country Ham along with our Sweet and Tangy Mustard. We have everything you need if you’re preparing a breakfast or brunch board. Delicious Country Ham, Smoked Bacon and Breakfast Sausage paired with Biscuits, Honey, Sorghum, Strawberry and Blackberry Preserves are all you need.
