Very few things scream 'Aperitivo!' like a lovely colorful board packed with all your favorite cheeses and fresh fruit!

Add a glass of your choice (a lovely glass of Italian bubbly would be ours), and let the kicking-back begin!

Although grapes, pears, and apples are without a doubt the best fruits to pair with cheese, don't be shy and chop up any  of your favorites.

Have fun, and remember that the star of this cheeseboard will definitely be your home-made sweet and spicy jams!

Tips on storing the jams

Put the jams in jars close the lids, put the jars in a pot and cover them with water.
Bring to a boil, boil 30 minutes and then let cool in the water.
The lid at the end of cooling (squeezing it in the center) should no longer be elastic and should not make any noise. Store in a cool place.
