When I was in first grade I had an assignment to learn how to make a PB&J sandwich.  Just in case you never got that lesson in school, or if you have forgotten, I have provided easy step-by-step instructions to make the perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Step 1: Get the Materials

To make the perfect PB&J sandwich you will need:

-A clean, flat food production surface (I use a clean cutting board)
-Peanut butter of your choice
-Jelly, jam, or preserves of your choice
-2 slices of sandwich bread
-A clean butter knife
<p>So many mistakes here: First, buy JIF not that Skippy crap and use only homemade jam whether it strawberry or grape or w/e flavor you like. Its so easy to make and tastes better than any brand. Second, go easy on the PB. For my tastes at least PB has a strong ability to dry your mouth out and overpowers the jam. Third, while no big deal, a cutting board isn't necessary. I just use the plate I plan to eat it off.</p>
<p>wish i had that assignment :) now i can enjoy the perfect sandwich thanks to this website</p>
<p>thanks, that just helped me do my homework!!!</p>
what did i just read
<p>Never double the peanut butter in a PB&amp;J. If you are bringing it for later (work lunch, outings, etc), invest in a box of snack bags ($2 US) and include a dollop of jam w/pocket knife or plastic knife (for spreading of jam). When using real chunky peanut butter the double spread really isn't an option. InclKuding a small bag or saranwrapped portion of jelly inside the sandwich bag is easy and a true PB&amp;J is not PB&amp;J&amp;PB.</p>
