In high school, one of my teachers once told us about how she grew up eating peanut butter and pickle sandwiches. I don’t know how the conversation began; I think it may have been in reference to the fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches that Elvis Presley used to eat.
So, being the adventurous foodie that I was and am, I went home and made a peanut butter and pickle sandwich. To my shock and delight, it was actually good- quite to the contrary of what one might imagine.
Peanut butter and pickle sandwiches have an amazing versatility because of the huge selection of pickles and peanut butter one can choose. Different combinations create different effects on the tongue, but no matter what, peanut butter and pickle sandwiches taste incredibly delicious and are a nice alternative to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches aren’t terrible, in my opinion, but as a child, I never completely grasped what the obsession with them was. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are almost so sweet that they could serve as a dessert and not as an actual meal. Then again, I imagine they lend themselves to an excellent variety, especially with the high availability of different kinds of jelly in this day and age.
So remember to be adventurous, and make yourself a PB & P sandwich sometime soon.
