CASA GRANDE — For those who wish to turn off the oven while still serving up a platter of yummy treats, a “grazing board” can offer something for everyone.
Like a cheese board, a grazing board includes crackers, cheeses, nuts, fruits and other easy-to-eat items.
Hayden Flour Mills offers the following suggestions for making the perfect grazing board.
Mini cracker grazing board

Fresh fruit (orange slices, pomegranate, persimmon)
Start with the crackers.
Do your grazers a favor and cut up hard cheeses into bite-sized cubes.
Dip goat cheese in edible flowers for an extra wow factor.
Use greens or leaves (fig or citrus) to fill in the empty spaces.
Build your grazing board on a rimmed baking sheet so it’s easy to cover, refrigerate and serve when ready.
