IMPORTANT TO READ PLEASE

When you make peanut butter and jelly sammiches, do you put pb on both sides so that the jelly does not make the bread gross?

I do. This is the correct way to make a pb&j. If you have been doing it incorrectly, no worries, do it right and be happy. That is all.

If there is PB on both slices of bread, then the jelly is left to slime around in the middle and there is no satisfactory sandwichy adhesion between the slices.

Plus jelly + bread infusion = yum!

Ditto! Plus, you will get jelly going right out the bottom of your lovingly-made samwich.

I have never experienced the jelly sliming around in the middle - it sticks to the pb very nicely! Plus, the PB sticks to itself.

Jelly + Bread = CRUNCHY BREAD. Yuck!

But the crunchy bread is my favorite part!

Oh noes!

It's just a texture I don't like, for some reason.

I agree with goingferal.

but mostly cuz I can never seem to get a thin spread of PB on my bread without ripping the bread to peices... and so then I have to lather the jam on to counter the thick peanut butter so that your mouth isn't tooo sticky.

But then I haven't eaten a PB&J sammich in like... omg 10 years at least.
Now I kinda want to try it again.... :D

BUT I LIKE THE JELLY BREAD!

Also, I am forever afraid of consuming too much fat so two sides of peanut butter would be OVERWHELMING.

It is EXCELLENT fat but I *cough* sometimes eat more fat than I should and so I must ONLY PUT PEANUT BUTTER ON ONE SLICE OF BREAD!

Plus, if I go easy on the PB I can justify eating walnuts later in the afternoon. GOTTA SAVE UP MY FAT!

That is so brave of you. I hate the way bread mixed with jelly tastes.

have you tried different kinds of bread? sourdough bread, heavy wheat breads, nut breads, and toasted breads, to me jelly is different on different breads.

I can tolerate it on toasted bread because it does not absorb the jelly as much. Dense bread is almost okay. But any really spongy bread...no. It makes it crackly and crunchy. I don't like that texture (I love dunking bread in soup, though).

i love dunking grilled cheese in soup. that makes a great texture. but yeah, jelly on soft spongy bread is too sloppy.

I'm having a really hard time understanding this.

How does soft and spongy + soft and sticky = crunchy at ALL? unless you have seeds in your jam... but I can see the crunch being more of the side of the peanut butter - if you go with crunchy peanut butter which I never get cuz smooth is where it's at yo.

but. Soft + soft =/= crunchy. You's insane!

No, you are wrong!

1) There is the afformentioned 'sliding' issue, which would be compounded because of...

2) The perfect ratio issue. Again, as mentioned, a really thin layer of pb is tough, so you end up with a lot more pb, which then requires extra jelly! More jelly = more sliding.

Also, your sandwich sits around long enough for the jelly to have an effect on the bread?!

I've never had the sliding issue or the perfect ratio issue (granted, I like pb a lot more than I like jelly!)

Tee-hee, it can take mere SECONDS for that jelly to weave its way into my bread. SECONDS.

Well, I guess *I am* the weird one here! :)

OK, as a lifetime eater of said PB&J let me weigh in for just  a sec. First, you need GOOD bread. The mark of goodness is that no condiment can turn it into a mushy mess. Clearly, you have some fail bread and need to immediately acquire better bread. That out of the way, lets notice that it's PB&J not PB&J&PB. It's a holy combination of a biblical proportions. Yes, they forget to mention the PB&J that was present at the last supper.  I don't know what happens to those who defile the sacred union of bread+PB+J+bread, but I'm sure it's not pretty.

My poor fail bread is sad.

PB&J&PB is awesome and balanced. I like it. My soul is prepared to risk eternal damnation for it. *nods*

I AM HERE TO REPRESENT PB ON BOTH SIIIIIIIDES!

Seriously, though. PB on only one side? Is just wrong. Your friends list is filled with people who are DOING IT WRONG.

As evidence, I just made a PB&J PROPERLY and am enjoying the hell out of it. There is no sliding going on. The bread is delicious. It would only be better with a handful of Doritos on the side.

AMEN, MAH SISTAH!!! I was starting to lose hope in my lj legion.

I tested my theory today as well and HAD TO FEED A ONE-SIDED PB&J SAMMICH TO MY DOGS. This was tragic for me but awesome for them. I still enjoyed one sammich full of PB double-sided goodness.
