# Sandwich question

When making the "perfect" peanut butter and jelly (PBJ) sandwich, what is the proper amount of peanunt butter and the proper amount of jelly to use? Is there a math formula for this question? I know you need to have a full glass of cold milk when serving this item but I'm a bit confused on the proper amounts of each ingredient.

I need the advice of a sammie expert.

Does this formula work with both crunchy and smooth peanut butter?

When one of my kids was 2, I made him a PBJ and he busted out crying. "You made it upside down!"

Don't make that mistake.

Depends on the jelly...

I cover one piece with peanut butter, medium thickness, then put a few swipes on the other piece. I then use a chili spoon, and just one scoop. And trust me, I have done a good amount of testing.

And crunchy peanut butter is no good.

Crunchy peanut butter, being dryer, requires a higher ratio of PB:J - more like 1:1.

And Jelly < Jam (especially strawberry)

Hey Count!
I think much depends on the individual. Personally, I love a whole lot of peanut butter, making sure one piece of bread is covered completely. Not too thick that it'll stick to the roof of my mouth, but just enough to be squishy and creamy. I don't like jelly. Gasp! Actually, I buy Concord Grape Jam, but I'm still not crazy about it. So, if jam is going on in place of say ... bananas, then it just a thin and I mean thin layer of jam.

What if it is preserves?

What's a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and why would anyone eat such a thing?

Toasted whole wheat. Butter the toast while its warm. Spread enough PB on one piece to cover the butter. One good bladeful should do. A little less jelly on the other piece.

This works well with English muffins, too.
