I know, I know, “who the heck has to try that” you say. Apparently it’s a thing that people really enjoy. From salted caramel everything to good old fashioned kettle corn, sweet and savory is a blend that people are talking about. And if people are talking about something weird and oddly popular then I guess I should eat it. I got conflicting reports on whether I should use kosher dills or bread and butter pickles. The contents of my fridge dictated that I went with kosher dill.
I figured 1/2 a sandwich would be plenty
I tried to balance the PB to P ratio pretty closely. I figured the pickle would be pretty overpowering and wanted to ensure the peanut butter got a fair shake.
Nothing to do with this tasting but jump right in so I did. The first bite was overwhelmingly pickle and bread, I smeared some more pb on and took another bite.
This one was much more balanced and really quite good. It was a great combination of salty, vinegary and sweet. I plowed through the entire 1/2 sandwich and then smeared some peanut butter directly on the remaining pickle slices that I had to finish up. My 6 year old daughter was intrigued enough that she asked me to try a bite. She loved it as well and asked me for 1/2 sandwich of her very own.
Suffice it to say my household just became a 50/50 split between PB and P eaters and people who won’t even try it. Clearly I think they should though.
