Thanksgiving Deli Make Ahead Instructions:

If you want to save a little time, feel free to set up your charcuterie board 24 hours in advance for Thanksgiving. Arrange your meats and cheeses, wrap the board tightly in plastic wrap, and place it in the freezer. Decide which type of bread and biscuits you will be serving, although it is best to cut the bread and remove the biscuits from the packaging before serving. The same goes for fresh fruit slices — wait until Thanksgiving to slice anything.

Storage Instructions:

If you have any leftovers from your Thanksgiving deli plate, you can store these ingredients in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It’s best to use up meat and cheese within 24 hours – however, if your plate sits out for more than 2 hours, you run the risk of spoiling and should throw away any leftovers. We recommend that you store any jelly or fruit separately, and be aware that sliced ​​fruit tends to turn brown if you don’t use it almost immediately. Wrap any remaining bread or cookies tightly in plastic wrap.
