A special guest post from the expert on PB&J’s, The Husband. In recent weeks, I have even infected the devout chocolate-freak in my household to gratuitously dip into whipped Peanut Butter for snacks, while she is working from home.
However, today– five+ years since my last post– I do not write (merely) to brag. I, Matthew Greenfield, have today discovered a most delectable pairing/pearing that will make you pecan-can with joy…
First, a word from our sponsors:
Quaker Lightly-Salted Rice Cakes (2)
A generous schmear of Toigo Orchards’ Pear Butter (from PA)
An even-more decadent schmear campaign of Reginald’s Lite Crunch Pecan-Bourbon-Peanut Spread (from VA)
Recommended Incidental Music and/or Humming: “La rejouissance” from Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks, celebrating the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, which peacefully concluded the War of Austrian Succession.
The mixture of flavors– the bitter, the savory, the sweet, the nutty, the salty– is most pleasing to the palate and, furthermore, results in many opportunities for just-in-time “rescues” of falling spreads from between the rice-cake buns (a favorite pastime of the young epicurean SNG):
From our family to yours– happy eating, and happy New Year!
