I'm a PBJ purist.  The peanut butter (I prefer Peter Pan Creamy) shall not touch thou jelly prior to being applied to the bread.  My wife kids me whenever I make a sandwich because I try to get both the PB & J evenly distributed, lest you get a bite with only one.  Yummy.  I probably eat five or six a week.

My favorate: peanut butter, jelly and ripe banana.  On the trail, peanut butter and a fresh crisp apple. Just put alittle PB on the apple and take a bite.  Jif is my fav.

Try it. You'll like it. Yum!  

Is this too much information or what!

Jiff Extra Crunchy.  Doesn't that imply that there's a Jiff Crunchy?  So where is it?  I'm forced to go with the Extra Crunchy :?

 :lol:  

As long as you're going to the all the good time and trouble to haul the PB out there, is there any reason not to go with the Extra Crunchy?  

Plain ol' Crunchy ain't even on the map!

Try the HEB Central Market Crunchy Peanut Butter.  It's nothing but mashed up peanuts; no extra sugar, oils, etc.  It separates at room temperature, but if you keep it in the fridge after preparing it then it'll stay stable for the most part (you should still give a good stir every now and then so the stuff at the bottom of the jar doesn't get too stiff).

I used to be a Jif man, but I don't think I'll go back as long as I can get a hold of the HEB stuff.  Of course, since it's just peanuts it needs a little something else.  Depending on my mood I'll add some honey or HEB CM Organic Jelly (strawberry or blueberry) to the sandwich.

(And lest I come across as a shill for HEB's CM products, I really do prefer the ones I've tried to the more mainstream brands.  They can be a little pricey, but as long as you don't have to feed a small army I think the quality justifies the price.)

The problem is the oil separates from the solids especially in the desert and then it dribbles down your chin if not careful.  

Totally unacceptable when lounging in the desert!  What would your camping buddies think!

Aha!  That's why you stir the J together with the PB before introducing it to the bread.  I don't know how well that works at hot desert temps, but it worked plenty fine for the sandwiches I carried on a hike in Seminole Canyon on an unseasonbly warm February day.  You do have to be careful about the proportions, though, to keep the mixture from being too dry.

And my camping buddies wouldn't care, as long as the Lone Star's served Texas-Cold (as per the directions on the can).  Come to think of it, as long as there's a cold place for beer, there's a cold place for PB, too!  It's win-win!

That stuff might be better for you but it sure doesn't taste as good as plain old JIF. I bought a whole jar a couple months ago and after one runny and bland PB sandwitch it got tossed. But the HEB jelly is great! Off to work with my PB&J in hand :D

Yeah, I tried to be good and eat the Whole Foods natural pb...blech.  Back to crunchy (or extra crunchy!) Jif for me...although we were a smooth Peter Pan family when I was growing up.

It freaked me out when, a few years ago, I saw someone make a pbj w/ blackberry jam.  Heresy!  Where's the grape jelly?!?  And my pb has to go all the way to the crust of the bread, and be on both pieces of bread.  I don't like my jelly soaking in.  :lol:

So how many of you spent your youth drinking from jelly jar glasses (with or without cartoon characters)?  I did!  I remember particularly a Tom & Jerry one.
As a matter of fact, I _do_ have an opinion on that....
