Peanut butter is a passion of mine.
I come from a long line of
As a young girl peanut butter sandwiches were a treat. (I have a theory that this is most in part to the fact my father was our family's version of the 'Hamburglar' and keeping a full jar on hand was near impossible.) Momma would stash the peanut butter high, and behind less interesting pantry foods (such as pasta and canned peas) to help throw us off the scent. But one thing I always has a say in was the type of peanut butter we kept on hand. You see the right way to make a PB&J is by spreading smooth peanut butter on one slice of bread and crunchy on the other. It's the perfect texture.
Next, you will prepare your gelatin- I use 200 bloom sheets (as opposed to powder based gelatin) but traditional gelatin will do just as fine. I find that professional grade gelatin sheets tend to be a very convenient way to store a large quantity of gelatin concentrate in an easy to prepare method. Simply soak your gelatin sheets in cold water for 10 minutes until it 'blooms,' then boil with the correct amount of water for 4-5 minutes, until liquid and even in texture.
What Daughter Says: Peanut butter is a comfort food for me- I'm always looking for new ways to share a little bit of comfort, magic, and smiles.
