Sous Vide FruitSous vide and charcuterie may not be an obvious pair and are certainly areas of the culinary world that have an artsy reputation. Sous vide fruit is an even further down that rabbit hole. That doesn’t have to be true. Both cooking sous vide and creating charcuterie boards are accessible in the home kitchen. Though they are very different, one being a cooking method and the other a combination of preserved meats, they can work together to create something greater than the sum of their parts.

Charcuterie boards will always have some common themes, specifically a variety of meats, cheeses, and fruits. Where the AnchorChef sous vide can step up your charcuterie game is the portion of the board that is occupied by beautiful and colorful fresh fruit. Using the AnchorChef to sous vide fruit in some simple syrup can give you soft and deliciously sweet cooked fruit to add to your board, or even a fresh homemade jam depending on how long you cook the fruit. Gently making your own sous vide fruit or jams or jellies with a sous vide like the AnchorChef is less expensive than buying canned options from the store, making charcuterie a much more available option at home.
