Even now that I’m old and able to afford the schmancy sammich toppings, there’s something comforting about a nice peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  It’s a bummer that nobody in my family likes the crunchy peanut butter I prefer on my PB and J, but at least we have a wide variety of jelly, from grape to strawberry to orange marmalade and even a weird onion jam that my brother-in-law bought us for the holidays once.  For my money, you can’t beat a strawberry jelly, but I appreciate the tangy appeal of grape, leading us to today’s Mason jar query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) prefers a slice of cheddar cheese, personally, but most people look at me funny, asking: What do you want on your PB and J: Grape, strawberry or none of the above?

Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    I’ll take pretty much any, as long as it’s fruit sweetened rather than sugar sweetened. Barring that, I’d prefer one that has recognizable bits of fruit, so strawberry jam.

    Oh, and my sympathies for living with creamy PB heathens.

  2. No Jelly, but I’d try some cheese on mine, now that you’ve mentioned it. PB & Cheese works on crackers, no reason it can’t work on a sammich.
