The headline begged for investigation: Peanut Butter Takes On an Unlikely Best Friend.
Really? I thought. A best friend that tops good ol’ jelly, or maybe banana and honey?
So tonight when I got home, I made a big salad for dinner, and then I decided to finish the meal with a little experimentation. Peanut butter on toast, three ways.
Pictured left to right:
- Bread-and-butter pickles
- Homemade relish from my mother-in-law
- Oven-roasted grapes
The winner in my book? My mother-in-law’s homemade relish. It has just the right balance of sweet-sour-tang to counteract the peanut butter. The store-bought bread-and-butter pickles didn’t have quite enough character, and the roasted grapes seemed boring compared after the other options. If I had some Wickles Pickles, I’d probably try those in place of the homemade relish.
Will I eat this again? I’m going to give it a shot at least once more. But I doubt it’ll take the place of my standby sandwich choices.
Has anybody else tried this? Or would you try it?
