I used to have peanut butter and jam sandwiches all the time and they bring back fond childhood memories. I have not had a PB&J sandwich in a long while but after I made the green tomato and jalapeno jam one of the first things that came to mind was a peanut butter and green tomato and jalapeno jam sandwich and I just had to try it. I like to toast the bread before making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich so that the peanut butter just starts to melt when it hits the warm toast making the sandwich even creamier. The peanut butter and green tomato jam worked surprisingly well. The sweet, tangy and spicy green tomato and jalapeno jam went really well with the creamy stick to the top of your mouth peanut butter. With the success of the grilled PB&J with a spicy jam and the grilled cheese sandwiches with spicy jams and chutneys I wonder in what other new ways I can enjoy the classic PB&J sandwich?

Kevin, the combination of PB and that jam sounds sooo interesting and delicious!

What else are you doing with green tomatoes? I've made a green tomato relish, ranch dressing fried green tomatoes, green tomato chili, and green tomato bread – but still have (literally!) 25 pounds of green tomatoes to use up – any ideas?
I love PB&J sandwiches, but this is a first for me. Green tomato and jalapeno jam? I think you're onto something here. I guess I've been stuck on the classic all this time.
You get tremendous kudos for one of the crazier sandwich combos I've heard of. I want a bite!

This jam you made is really haunting me. I'm going to have to make it! It sounds so different and interesting and now on a Peanut Butter sandwich! yum
Whoa this is crazy! And by crazy I mean crazy delicious. I bet PB would also be great with one of your many chutneys.
Brilliant combination of flavours!
I am sure my husband likes this a lot. Will make this tomorrow morning. Thanks!
Not sure I could do that one, my taste buds would be too perplexed:)
nice Kevin nice! you know I love this creative combo
Il burro di arachidi è buonissimo…
Have you ever thought of using a banana butter on top of the peanut butter? Perhaps with some chopped peanuts sprinkled on for texture. Or a light caramel coat topped with chocolate.
I'm gonna have to say, that sounds odd, but I trust it tastes great!
This is completely interesting! I never use any of my non-traditional jellies in traditional ways.
I fear that posts such as this prompted the new International "Eater" to make their offer.
Very sad, I think.
I love peanut butter and jelly and Jalapenos sandwichs. And lemon pound cake with jalapenos.
Oooh I want to try that jam. I've recently gotten addicted to pickled green tomatoes with fresh mint (awesome!) but taking them in a sweet direction is such a creative idea!
Lovely twist to the PBJ sandwich! Looks great!

That sounds soooo good!
What an interesting combination of flavors, I bet you that is very tasty 🙂
I heart your recipes. ALL of them. Can you post some exercises?! Just kidding, keep the recipes coming!
Interesting combo. Sounds Delicious!!
Cooking with Michele: I am just starting to get into green tomatoes. So far I have done the fried green tomatoes and the green tomato jam. Next I was thinking about a green tomato pie and some pickled green tomatoes. I like the sound of a green tomato chili and the green tomato bread!
