Nothing reminds me of heading back to school more than the peanut butter and jelly sandwich I used to proudly pull out of my lunch pail on the first day of school. As I watch kids file into Montandon Elementary School every morning on my way to work, it brings back so many memories of school growing up: finding out who my teacher was going to be, recess antics, Friday night football games in town.
Today, in honor of these memories, I decided to stray away from the classic Skippy Peanut Butter used by the masses, and make my own using our Pardoe’s Blistered Peanuts. I had read from bloggers online that it was possible to simply blend these up and have peanut butter in three minutes or less. Though skeptical, the thought of those crunchy treats becoming a spread on my favorite sandwich was too tempting to resist.
So, I put three 3 cups of our blistered peanuts into the blender, eased my way up to full power, and found myself blissfully spreading an ultra creamy peanut butter onto my sandwich 3 minutes later! The best part? I still had enough left over for my sandwiches for the rest of the week! If only every recipe was this simple!
When we went back to the factory to share the recipe, Carl mentioned another great blended treat comes from our Sweet, Salty Nutty mix. If your sweet tooth is singing, try the same technique with that trail mix and enjoy!
