Hmmm... Interesting question!

I always preferred chunky to creamy except on those rare days when I didn't feel like crunching my sandwich.  Of course, it's not like it was torture to do the creamy.

Oh, and I'm a Jif man - since that always seems to be necessary in any PB discussion.

Because chunky peanut butter is disgusting and if i wanted to crunch on peanuts I would eat peanuts or a Payday or something.  Peanut butter is nasty anyway, I had it too much as a kid and I almost can't stand it now. 

Here's the big question: is it necessary to use half a jar per sandwhich? My hub thinks so.  Also, what is your position on scraping the knife off in the jar?  Or do you do pb first them Jelly, all on the same slicce or must it be separated?

I'm a pb on the right, Jelly (preserves, actually, it spreads better) on the left, I'll scrape because I dont want pb in my jelly.  Hub gets inscenced when i do the says it leaves crumb in the pb jar, and I should wipe the knife off on the blank slice.  I say that mixes my pb and Jelly before it is absolutely necessary.

how is that for ocd?  Grin

Well, I'm not saying I have OCD or anything, BUT...

My regimen for PB&J Assembly looks like this:

1. Go to loaf; pick top two breadslices that will 'match' in width, shape, crust texture, and size.

2. Place both slices in front of me, on a shelf, seperated by approximately 1", facing right-side up. The intended interior portions of the sandwich must point skyward.

3. The jelly/jam (preferably homemade strawberry, as previously noted) is to be applied first, on the left hand slice of bread since we read left-to-right. This is to be done using a butter knife or similar dull edged knife; no spoons, carving knives, paring knives, or steak knives are permitted. A maximum of two knife-fulls are to be spread. The jelly or jam is then to be distributed evenly over the bread slice, but does not have to reach the edge of the crust (this is the preference of my equally-sort of OCD spouse as well as child #3). The jam or jelly knife can be cleaned with a maximum of two strokes on a clean piece of bread; if this does not provide adequate cleaning, then the knife can be cleaned at the sink or, preferably, a previously unused knife retrieved from the silverware drawer (all such knives WILL be found in the appropriate drawer section noted for 'Butter Knives' in our family's kitchen)

4. The same procedure regarding jelly/jam application is to be repeated for peanut butter.

5. For a special treat, one knife-full of peanut butter may be gathered directly from the jar and then inserted into the assembler's mouth. Once this is done, the knife must be taken directly to the dish washer for later cleansing.

6. The peanut butter slice is then to be picked up, touched ONLY on the crust edges, inverted, and placed on top of the jelly slice (using the jelly slice as the top at this point may cause jelly to fall of the bread; then everything has to be repeated for that slice only).

7. The sandwich must then be inverted so that the peanut butter slice is on the bottom of the sandwich.

It's really very simple! Considering how two of my food quirks are:
-foods must be eaten in a certain order, determined by food group, and I cannot move to the next group until all of the group started is finished; and
-Foods cannot touch each other on my plate

The assembling of a PB&J is somethign that cannot be taken lightly, since in a way it violates both of these rules. However, I've come to terms with this if the sandwich is assembled as described.

I like both, but I think I like chunky more, because it's more filling. Smiley  I'm pretty simple when it comes to PB&J...

So i've been thinking...

Why is it that almost no one uses chunky peanut butter when making PB and J?? 



"almost no one"?!??! I'm shocked, shocked I say!  You must have had a pretty small data sample for that one.  Grin Wink 

We're a divided house here, so we have both smooth and crunchy (in fact "Super-crunchy" went it's available/on sale.)

And on a totally random note, here are some lyrics to "The Agincourt Carol" because today, October 25, is St. Crispin's Day and in 1415 the Battle of Agincourt took place.  This is a terrific song, imho  One may here it sung here:
http://ise.uvic.ca/Library/SLT/literature/medievalmusic.html

Our king went forth to Normandy,
With grace and might of chivalry;
Ther God for him wrought marvelously,
Wherefore England may call, and cry
Deo gracias: Deo gracias Anglia redde pro victoria.

Also Henry V's speech from the play that mentions  what day it is;

 
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by from this day
until the ending of the world but we in it shall be remembered.
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers,
For he today who sheds his blood with me shall be my brother,
Be he ne'er so vile, this day shall gentle his condition,
and gentlemen in England now abed
shall think themselves acursed they were not here,
and hold their manhoods cheap whilst any speaks,
that fought with us upon St. Crispin's day!
 

(this has nothing at all to do with peanut butter unless crunchy can lead to crispy and thence to Crispin.  Wink )

The recording on the website you linked to was pretty good, they didn't butcher the late middle english too badly, they kept most the pre vowel shift pronunciations. Though they did fail to pronounce a a lot of the letters that are silent in modern english but most likely would have still been pronounced in the early 15th century (especially the final e's). Still, neat site.

This is definately going back to PB and J. 

The reason I brought up my comment is that one of the freshmen in the College here are doing their English Comp. papers on "how to make something" and someone enevitably picked PB and J.  However, they went all out and did research and stuff.  They also had their own process of making the sandwich, which was VERY different. 

Basically, he found out that out of the 30 people that he asked (which is a large number at our school) 90% of the people chose CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER!!!!!  (no joke)  (numbers are obviously approximated). 

Needless to say, my friend was pissed... Wink

So he basically said that you need to TOAST whole grain bread (or any other kind of bread). 
After toasting CHUNKY PEANUT BUTTER needs to be used, and I believe he also mentioned preserves instead of anything else.  I'm not sure if these are the actual details...my memory is a little rusty. 

My personal preferance is CHUNKY with preserves.  I need both substances to be spread THROUGHOUT the bread, not as Fr. Chris likes it.  I want it seeping over the edge!   Grin

I actually like my PB&J either untoasted, or only lightly warmed - the benefit to warmed is the slight melting of the PB... but I hate it when the bread is too crispy or burnt (blech!).

Aparantly there is some kind of correlation to CHUNKY peanut butter and toasted bread. 

I am not certain of the validity of this claim...further research is necessary.   Grin

Around this house, the smooth peanut butter is likely to be on toasted bread.

Now I'm going to introduce other options: What about Peanut Butter and Pickle, or Peanut butter and banana or Fluffernutter?

Is Outrage!

Is product of non-traditional, scholastic, Western thinking! The Fathers of the Peanut Butter and the Jelly never discussed the union of the Peanut Butter with the pickle, the banana, or the artificial and unnatural creation the Fluffernutter!

Anethema! We lift you to the mercy of God for such thoughts!

My objections would just be based on taste, not theology. Wink

Is Vegemite Banned in the United States?

Whether it is or not, should it be?

If it tastes anything like its British equivalent, Marmite, then this should seriously be considered!   Wink

Is Outrage!
Is product of non-traditional, scholastic, Western thinking! The Fathers of the Peanut Butter and the Jelly never discussed the union of the Peanut Butter with the pickle, the banana, or the artificial and unnatural creation the Fluffernutter!
Anethema! We lift you to the mercy of God for such thoughts!
Fr. Krislashnikov

Fr Kris,
A noted Orthodox Church historian has just published a paper proving that the addition of pickles, bananas, and Fluffernutter to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches occured in the West at the same time as the addition of the Filioque to the Creed.

Is no surprise! Is too much to think coincidental arrival of Filioque with mixing the peanut butter with the pickles, the bananas, and the fluffernutter is 'simple coincidence'!
The decadence of Western theology is made apparent by the adulterated recipes for peanut butter sandwiches!

Give me a Foster's, a smoke, and a vegemite, mate!

Will having the first two of those simultaneously give me the strong constitution needed for the third?

Actually, you just need what we call a "Drover's Breakfast" which consists of "a smoke and a spit".
(A "drover" is a herdsman on horseback who drives cattle or sheep and they are known for their frugal diet.)

I begin to suspect, btw, that with the several references "fluffernutter" as though it were a seperate ingredient that some here do not know what it is.  Wink tsk tsk  Allow me to provide some enlightenment.

A concoction more diametrically opposed to Vegemite there cannot possibly be!
Vegemite is the way of ascesis. Fluffernutter is the way of self indulgence.
Vegemite is apophatic. Fluffernutter is cataphatic.
Vegemite is the via negativa. Fluffernutter is the via positiva.

Only if you don't add anything like sugar, cream, milk, banana, saltanas etc, and you neither enjoy it nor despise it.
But to be sure, I'll have to ask Fr. Vasili.

I feel the same way about SPAM as some people do about genetic "defects" - they should be bred out of the population, to end their drag on the evolution of the gene pool.
