Curious mid-night snack

Ever wondered where the peanut butter sandwich came from?

I did. So that was the topic of my google research last night.

Oh, where my curious mind takes me…

Wikipedia explains this way…

The comment to readers by Joyce, found in the below link was very interesting. She mentions,

We were not the only kids to have pb&j in our lunch boxes. It was hardly the kind of thing that you would write in a “cookbook.” I think the lack of a printed record describing how to spread peanut butter and jam on a piece of bread does not mean that it did not happen – it did. Do you have a written record of when the first “toast” was served? Was it buttered? What kind of butter? Some things just happen naturally and often in many wide spread areas.

The article linked below, brings out a good point: The invention of sliced and wrapped bread.

Having sliced bread available, made it easier for children to make the sandwich. In turn raising the popularity of the sandwich.

How do you like your peanut butter and jelly sandwich?

I like:
1. Wheat bread toasted
2. Crunchy peanut butter
3. Low sugar/ home-made jam

This is another product that I buy and do not deviate from. I don’t like other peanut butters.

I will stick with these until I learn how to make my own. Which is something I look forward to doing in the future.
