💭How to keep crackers from getting soggy on charcuterie board?
Choose sturdy crackers that can hold up to the various toppings you place on a charcuterie board. You may want to place a layer of waxed paper on top of the board before adding the crackers. This will help absorb any moisture that accumulates during your celebration.
Try to place any "wet items" like cheese, meats and crackers away from the crackers. Instead place the crackers near different cheeses or small bowls filled with olives and jams.
