Prevent peanut butter jelly soggy

Is what I googled. You can guess my intent. I don’t know about you, but I’ve long been plagued by a watery, compressed, floppy PB and J.

If you eat it right away, then all’s good. Not sufficient time for the jelly to thoroughly soak the bread. However, as is more often the case for me, I’m taking it with me, and when it’s time to chow down, I’ve got a smushy, gushy semi-sandwich that is as flexible as a circus girl.

In my decisive effort to remediate this plague, I asked my friend the Internet. The answer was quick and unanimous. No longer will I have soggy sandwich.

The secret? Put peanut butter on both pieces of bread, and the jelly then goes between. So simple. The peanut butter acts as a moisture barrier, preventing jelly seepage.

    A light toasting also provides structural reinforcement. Toast the bread, not the pb or j.
