Making the Perfect Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Nothing is too difficult when one knows what he wants and is familiar with the steps it takes to complete the process. Sometimes the most simple of procedures can be as complex as one decides to make it. Take making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, for example. It seems like an easy task because so many of us have made one in the past, but there are many decisions that need to be made while doing so.

This helps in making the sandwich because it will be more difficult to tear the bread when spreading the sandwich's ingredients on it. Once a person has chosen the proper bread for their diet, they are ready to add the two famous ingredients which are none other than, peanut butter and jelly.

There are a much broader range of jellies and jams than one might think. The most commonly used are the "red" or "purple" jams. The flavor of these vary depending on the manufacture and include grape, strawberry, raspberry, and boysenberry flavors. However, there are also "orange" jams flavored with peaches and apricots. Some people don't even use jam or jelly. If the jelly portion of the sandwich is not your favorite, there are many other options that one could consider.
