Resa’s Berry Special Guest Post…

February 21st, 2010

My sister Resa decided to share her twist on a classic…

As a second year law student my life consists of four items: gym, class, studying and (occasionally) sleep. Grocery shopping and food preparation have to be squeezed into the schedule in a quick, efficient manner. I can have a PB&J, yogurt, and cup of coffee on the table in less than three minutes. My reliance on the PB&J for sustenance has made me somewhat of a peanut butter addict over these past two years. My go to brand is Peter Pan Crunchy. Moms are supposed to choose Jif, but mine chose Peter Pan. The choice has stuck. So when Peter Pan Honey Roast appeared in my grocery store, I had to try it.

The peanut butter doesn’t really taste honey flavored which is unsurprising if you take a quick glance at the label. The FDA requires that food ingredients be listed in descending order of weight. The label shows molasses, sugar, and then honey. This means that the majority of the sweet comes from sources other than honey. If you buy this expecting to have the amazingness of peanut butter and honey in one convenient jar, you’ll be disappointed. If you are like me you will be drooling over the possibilities that a really sweet peanut butter can provide.

I first decided to just throw the PB between two slices of bread and call it a meal. It was ok, but the sweetness needed to be balanced out with something. Jams were out because that would be adding even more sweet. That left actual fruit. I wandered around the store for a little while pondering my options and eventually settled on raspberries. Then in a moment of weakness I grabbed a bottle of Hershey’s Syrup.

I now present you with peanut butter crack. This is a dessert and yet there is enough protein for it to pass as meal.

The first try I only sorta mushed the berries. The result was a bit uneven.

On my second attempt I used a lot more berries and smooshed them very well. This sandwich tasted even better.


2 slices of Light Honey Wheat Bread

2 Tbsp Peter Pan Honey Roast Crunchy

Raspberries to taste

Drizzle of Chocolate Syrup

    Hi Resa! I hope you also get some non-PB things in there too, hehe (I underestimate the hardship of law school. In medical school, we relied a lot on food delivery and – ugh – hospital food.)

    so I guess I’m not choosy?! I never liked Jiff and I don’t like crunchy either but this looks pretty good.
