    Literary Mom's Note:

    After years of experimentation, I have finally come upon the best tasting (and healthiest) way to satisfy a PB&J craving AND keep my kids healthy. Don't leave out the secret ingredient or it won't be the same. I guessimating the measurements so feel free to adjust to your taste.

      I had heard of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches but I never tried to make one because I felt it seemed too complicated for me to try to make. The sandwich turned out tasting okay but it was very messy. I am thinking maybe I put the sandwich together wrong. Was the peanut butter and jelly supposed to be on the outside of the bread? There was no picture so I assumed it was.

      I did not have peanut butter in the pantry so I used smashed peanuts with a tablespoon of butter instead. Unfortunately my sandwich was average.. what type of milk should be used? The recipe didn't specify so I bought skim, full fat, longlife and soy? don't think I will be making this again, I was looking forward to this recipe.

      Ok. I was skeptical about butter on my PB & J but it turned out nicely. The salt in the butter makes the flavors of the peanut butter and jelly stand out. Our family was always an equal amt peanut butter and jelly group but this sandwich which had more peanut butter was delicious. I measured it out as described with the only change being I used grape jelly because that is our preference. Lovely take on an old favorite! Thanks for posting. Enjoy. ChefDLH
