Did you know that today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day?
Of course a PBJ starts out with the right bread. For me that is Home Pride Butter Top Wheat bread.
Then you need to make sure you have the right peanut butter. I always have a jar of JIF Creamy Peanut Butter on my counter. It is the best peanut butter for a good PBJ.
I am going to cheat a little bit here and have jam instead of jelly.
Of course that means some Smucker’s Strawberry Jam.
There is a very good reason to choose Smucker’s. My great great grandfather Jeremiah Yoder was a second cousin of Ella Yoder the wife of the founder Jerome Monroe Smucker. I am also related to J.M. Smucker, but only a 4th cousin.
Since JIF is also a Smucker’s brand it makes for a good combination.
Here are the two pieces of bread spread with the sandwich fillings.
Of course the two halves must go together and my PBJ is ready to eat.
Of course the first bite was delicious. Memories of childhood PBJ’s came to mind as I enjoyed my sandwich.
Did you have a PBJ today?
