Grimm’s Charcute-Wreath

Tis’ the season for all things Merry & Bright – like this star-themed Grimm’s Charcute-Wreath!

This Grimm’s Charcute-Wreath is sure to impress your holiday guests this year and is surprisingly simple to assemble!

What you’ll need for your Charcute-Wreath:

  • 1/2 ring of Grimm’s Double-smoked Ukrainian sausage, sliced
  • 1/2 ring of Grimm’s Polish sausage, sliced
  • 8 Grimm’s Mini Peps, sliced in half (I did a combo of honey garlic and lean turkey for some depth in colour)
  • 1 handful of Grimm’s pepperoni toppers
  • 12-15 large pieces of rosemary (will vary depending on the size board) and 4-5 twist ties to secure
  • 1 persimmon, sliced (or a sliced orange is an excellent substitute if you can’t find a persimmon)
  • 1 triangle of smoked cheddar cheese, cut into 6 even triangles
  • To garnish: Fresh Thyme, Cranberries and Gooseberries

To build your Charcute-Wreath:

  1. Start by chopping all the Grimm’s meat products, the cheese, and the persimmon then set aside.
  2. Working with 2-3 strands of rosemary at a ta time, use twist ties to secure the ends together and place them on your board in a circular fashion. You want to aim for about 2 inches in thickness.
  3. Next, place the persimmon (or orange) slices on the rosemary with about a 1-inch gap in between each slice.
  4. Next place the sliced Grimm’s Double-smoked Ukrainian sausage on the inside of the rosemary leaving about a 1-inch gap. Arrange the mini peps within the gaps, then place the sliced Grimm’s Polish sausage in an alternate position.
  5. Line the inner circle with pepperoni bites then place the cheese triangles into a star-like formation. Garnish with thyme, cranberries, and gooseberries and dig in!
