Peanut butter and WHU????

Y'all, I've had a religious experience over here at The Kiefer Cottage, and it's all thanks to peanut butter...


...and pickles.

Last night, I read an article from the NYTimes on the cult classic: the peanut butter and pickle sandwich.

At first, I thought that sounded kind of gross.

But I love Bread and Butter pickles, and I love Peanut Butter, so I might as well give it a try.  (I also love liver and pickles together and if you haven't tried the combination, you should. And don't give me that "I know I wouldn't like it" because I've missed out on winning tastes when I refused to try something new.)

First, I spread the peanut butter on a piece of bread (I didn't want to use two pieces in case I hated the thing).

Next I added slices of pickles.

Then I folded it over and ate it.  I felt it needed a lot more pickles, so I doubled the number, and then decided this might be the most delicious new thing I've tried in quite some time.

I shall eat this again.

Ryan, on the other hand, decided, after one bite, that only a crazy fool like me could enjoy such a strange combo.

That's okay. More for me.

Tried anything new lately?

I linked up to The All Star Block Party.


  1. I don't like pickles, so I don't see myself trying this anytime soon. What I DO want to try, though, is a peanut butter and bacon sandwich.

  2. I used to do this with sweet pickles, but it's been since childhood. I may just have to break that out again. :)
    On a related note, I made a grilled PB and banana sandwich for Jack on Saturday, which he refused to eat. I was kinda glad that he did, because it was delicious!

  3. Not a big fan of PB or pickles but I totally know what you mean about missing out on something great by thinking you won't like it. I'm just trying to convince my kids to keep trying new things... not getting very far yet :) Thanks for sharing at All Start Block Party last week.
