Just when you thought that PB&J required only three ingredients - or was foolproof - Ruth Reichl over at Gilt Taste deconstructs the old classic, making it almost recipe-worthy. She poetically describes the process of making the perfect sandwich, being careful to take into consideration the elements of utmost importance: which bread to use, jam-to-peanutbutter ratios, and how a correctly-wrapped PB&J always invovles wax paper. Always.

Reichl also offers up an alternative which invloves peanutbutter, mayo, and pimento-stuffed olives. We’re mildy scared. This bold combination may not be going into Amanda’s kids' lunches anytime soon, but she promises it’s worth it.

its peanut butter and jelly, not peanut butter and jam*

That being said, I absolutely love the jelly from a dunkin donuts jelly donut.

PB&J is one of my favorite things of all time. When I was young, I would eat one after school every day, except for the days when I would sneak stawberry Haagen Dazs ice cram from the freezer and eat it with milano cookies. I'm wondering what everyone's favorite brand of jam is.
