Saturday Sandwich 63: Peanut Butter & Jelly

This week's sandwich is one we've had often in our house but according to most Americans we haven't had it properly. The proper jelly/jam to use is Grape Jelly and you can't buy it easily in the UK. Luckily as it's JD's favourite jam I made him some for his birthday earlier this month. Hurrah \o/

We decided to have two different Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches to compare. JD is also particular about how the sandwich is made with peanut butter on one slice of bread and jelly on another and not one spread on top of the other. I did that once and have since been corrected.


 Smooth peanut butter with grape jelly.


 Crunchy peanut butter with strawberry jam.


I was surprised how different the one with grape jelly tasted having been used to eating them with strawberry jam usually. It was much nicer, I can see why it's the American favourite. JD prefers the crunchy peanut butter where I prefer the smooth. This recipe called for white bread which we don't often eat, both liking brown bread peanut butter & jelly sandwiches much better. Leigh and Erin fail to get the joy of a pb&j and opted for just a jam sandwich for Leigh and just peanut butter for Erin. *sigh*
