2 (1/2-inch-thick, 4-by-5-inch-long) slices white sandwich bread
2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
2 tbsp strawberry jam
1 tbsp unsalted butter
A peanut butter and jelly (or jam) sandwich is one of the most famous sandwiches in the world following second to the Ham sandwich. PB&J includes one or more layers of peanut butter and one or more layers of either jelly or jam on bread. The sandwich is quite common and popular in North America, especially for children; a 2002 survey showed the average American will have eaten 1,500 of these sandwiches before high school graduation which is astounding as a statistic even if the child would consume almost over 250 sandwiches a year.
There are several variations on the sandwich. For example, honey or sliced fruit can be substituted for the jelly component. On the flip side, the popularity of almond butter has inspired some aficionados to transition to “almond butter and jelly” (AB&J) sandwiches. It is sold commercially in restaurants that specialize in peanut butter sandwiches, such as Peanut Butter & Co.
