For today’s charcuterie board, I was particularly inspired by the fresh fruit and cheese selection at our local market. Berries have always been my favorite fruits and this board features raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries as well as our all-time favorite jam grapes. If you’ve ever wondered which grapes pair the best for charcuterie boards, the jam grape (followed by champagne grapes) is our ultimate go-to. The sweetness of the grapes really balances the different savory flavors on the board and a jam grape dipped in herb and garlic chevre will blow your mind, trust me.
Since we were enjoying our Grapefruit & Rosemary Spritzer’s with our board, we decided to tie in the fresh herbs from our drinks into the board. Our herb garden is really exceptional this year, and we have quite a few herbaceous options to choose from.
Our honeycomb from Capital Bee Co (in Savannah but ordered online), is still tasting delicious at over a year old. I ordered it back in early 2020 when we first started putting together our charcuterie boards, and although you can find honeycomb at most grocery stores, I definitely recommend the honeycomb from Capital Bee Co for its superior flavor profile.
With all of the delicious flavors featured on our board, we opted for the Original Flavor for our 48 Degrees Crisps (we’ve previously featured the Rosemary Flavor), giving us our ‘crunch’ factor along with our walnuts and sliced almonds.

Finally, for the plate, we used to create our bistro board (because I know some of you may be curious!) It’s the dinner plate from the Honeycomb Collection and makes the perfect charcuterie board. After all, you don’t always have to use an actual board or platter for your charcuterie board, and having the honeycomb design peeking out adds another decorative touch to any charcuterie board. Although the Marble Honeycomb Round Cheese Board that’s part of the collection does keep calling my name…
