Fall Charcuterie Board - Goat Cheese with dried herbs

You know I’m obsessed with seasonal eating, but there’s also something nostalgic about getting the right flavors in the right season. We all love pumpkin flavors in fall along with the right spices and all kinds of baking. This fall charcuterie board is a simple take on flavors of the seasons.

This fall charcuterie board is filled with a few delectable items that can be homemade or store-bought depending on what you have time for and what you prefer. Any mixing and matching will work well!

The inspiration for this spread came from the pumpkin butter, something I feel in love with from Trader Joe’s and then was caught off guard when I found that they stopped selling it the first day of November. So I had to create my own homemade pumpkin butter recipe.

And then people kept telling me how easy it was to make cranberry sauce, so I now have my own cranberry sauce recipe (find it in this cranberry appetizer).

And on the topic of items Trader Joe’s makes m fall in love with and then takes away – cornbread crackers! They’re so good and PERFECT on this appetizer board.

Anyway, you can absolutely buy the pumpkin butter, cranberry sauce, and/or cornbread crackers! But just know that if you can’t find them, homemade is always an doable option!

What should go on a Fall Charcuterie Board?

Any combination of cheese, meats, apples, pears, pumpkin butter, cranberry sauce, crackers, and dried fruit as well as nuts are the best way to make a delicious appetizer spread.

What kind of cheeses are best for a fall charcuterie board?

I used goat cheese here because it’s so versatile. If you want to add more cheeses, I’d recommend stronger and or drier cheeses, including but not limited to sharp cheddar, brie, and manchego.

What kind of meats are best for a fall charcuterie board?

Cured meats for charcuterie boards include prosciutto, salai, and Jamon serrano. Fennel sausage and guanciale are also delicious options. Since this is a fall charcuterie board, including sliced turkey or ham is also a fun option!

What Fruits are in Season in Fall?

What can I make Ahead?

If you’re planning to make the crackers, cranberry sauce, or pumpkin butter yourself, everything can be made up to one day ahead of time. Store sauce and butter in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Seal crackers in a container or reusable bag to keep fresh!
