HOMEMADE PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY SANDWICH
sandwich with homemade peanut butter from roasted nuts and jam
PREP TIME: 30 min
kitchen robot with blades (food processor)
unsalted peanuts – 350g
salt – 1/2 tsp
STRAWBERRY JAM (faster option)
fresh or frozen strawberries – 1kg
sugar – 4 tbsp
lemon juice – 1 tbsp
GRAPE JAM (time-consuming option)
dark grapes – 1kg
sugar – 12 tbsp
lemon juice – 3-4 tbsp
cinnamon – 1 teaspoon
toast bread slices
1. ROASTING PEANUTS (5 min)
Put the nuts on a dry and hot pan and roast them on medium heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally. They must be sligthly browned. Let them cool for a few minutes.
2. GRINDING (5 min)
Put warm (but not hot) toasted nuts on the food processor. Mix them pulsating for about 5 minutes, taking breaks from time to time so as not to overheat the engine. After the first 2-3 minutes, a greasy mass should begin to form. Continue blending until a uniform, creamy consistency is obtained. Add a little salt to taste and mix again.
3. STRAWBERRY JAM – faster option (30 min)
Put fresh or frozen strawberries and sugar into a pot. Heat to a boil over high heat and crush the strawberries with a potato masher, for example. Cook for about 20 minutes over medium heat until the mixture thickens. Finally, add a little lemon juice to even out the flavor. Cook for a moment longer, and when the mixture is thick enough, pour it into the clean jar, screw the lid on and put jar upside down. Set aside to cool down.
4. GRAPES JAM – time-consuming option (1,5h)
Tear the fruit off the stems, wash and place in a pot, add sugar and bring to a boil over a strong fire. Mash the fruit with a potato masher to a pulp, then rub it through a sieve to get rid of seeds and skins. Put the flesh rubbed through the sieve back in the pot, on the burner and simmer it over medium heat, uncovered for about 1 hour, stirring frequently. At the end, season with lemon juice and cinnamon, and when the mixture is too sour, add more sugar. Cook for a moment, and when the mass is thick enough, pour it into a clean jar, screw the lid on and put jar upside down. Set aside to cool down.
The bread can be additionally fried in a pan or heated in a toaster for a crispy effect. Brush one slice generously with peanut butter and the other slice with jam and fold. Such a sandwich with homemade peanut butter and jam is a perfect snack not only for the morning coffee, but also as a snack for special journeys! Ash recommends!
