I've always found them at the yearly food festivals. They do have a retail place in Pasadena (which is only 20 or so miles from me) but I haven't needed to go there. Whenever I've found them, I buy each wonderful jar by the case!

VAGRILLER! lol!!
"Gee....it says 'fra-geeeee-lay'! Must be italian!" Thanks for the chuckle.


Banana Brain - my favorite breakfast at Grandpa and Grandma's as a kid:
creamy peanut butter and banana slices on hot squaw bread toast.
(no substitutions here!)
Melts in your mouth!!!!


Another PB, having nothing to do with sandwiches: I like to stir fry chicken in peanut butter, green onions and some spicy pepper oil. (Over angel hair pasta)

I can't stand PB and jelly but love PB and almost any kind of fruit. Besides the banana you mentioned I've had it with strawberries, peaches, apples, and pears. Also tried it with pineapple but not as good. I'd rather just have a pineapple and mayo sandwich. Some people might think that sounds strange but I also like bologna, banana and mayo sands.

My hubby likes PB and cream cheese.

What a great thread!

I must insist that you try the classic "fluffer nutter" which is peanut butter and marshmallow fluff on white bread (although it's pretty good on wheat). This combination also tastes great toasted, or with some chocolate syrup drizzled on it. I imagine it would also taste good with some honey thrown into the mix...been meaning to try it.

Peanut butter and honey has ALWAYS been my favorite , especially if you let it sit for 15 minutes and the honey soaks into the bread a little...oh, heaven!

I have also heard of peanut butter and pickle sandwiches. I've never tried it, but...I'd like to see your opinon! I'm not sure what kind of pickles you're supposed to use, however. I'll check around and see if I can dig something up.

Happy tasting!

Well, I googled PBandPickles, and I believe that the trick is to use sweet pickle chips rather than bread and butter or dill pickles.

Please let us know how this one works out!

Wasn't that invented by some pregnant woman?

Because I don't have bacon, I'm trying PB with fried honey-ham. Hmmm. I'll have to give this a 3. I'm a little grossed out by this flavor, sorry.

PB (crunchy-style), sliced apples and raisins on a soft flour tortilla - or between two waffles (a waffle-wich).

Spread PB on a hot waffle and top with strawberries, bananas & blueberries & whipped cream.

Spread PB on a hot waffle, top with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup.
I've already had the strawberry preserves panini pretty much, because I used strawberry preserves for my grilled PB and J. Very Tasty!

Sliced apple with raisons in a tortilla: wow, I am suprizes by how good this is! I wouldn't think peanut butter would meet a tortilla properly, but in this case it does. 8.5/10.

The other two I would test, but they don't really meet the crieteria for peanut butter sandwhich. But man, I havn't had a PB waffle in years. I've got to have another soon.
