Peanut butter and jelly has to be one of my favorite sandwiches. In fact, I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for breakfast this morning. I believe the best PB & J sandwich needs 3 important ingredients. To start, the bread needs to be extremely fresh. Eating a sandwich on sort of old, dry bread will not do. Secondly, the peanut butter should be Jif. I have to admit I was a Skippy peanut butter fan for some time but I switched back to Jif after having it at my sister’s house. She reminded me that my grandmother always used Jif. Anything my granny made was delicious so I went back to Jif and am happy that I did. Finally, there is the jelly. I prefer strawberry jam on my PB & J.
Soft bread, Jif peanut butter (without chunks, please) and strawberry jam- that’s what I call a perfect sandwich. The only thing that can make it even better is an icy, cold glass of milk.
