I might upset some people (Americans) and this may get moved.

So I'm an Australian and I just found out that Americans call jam... jelly.
For the past 40 years I've thought that they actually were putting jelly on their
sandwiches, which really confused me as it seemed like a really strange thing to do
plus it would be really hard to spread. Not that jam and peanut butter isn't weird anyway.
But why do they do everything completely backward to the rest of the world?
It pains me listening to them pronounce herbs in cooking shows, saying A-Dee-Dis
instead of Add-E-Das or when they talk about the weather. idk, bloody weirdos!

Both jams and jellies are used. And, no, jam is 'jam' and jelly is 'jelly'.
There are also marmalades and preserves. All different.

I also prefer crunchy peanut butter.

It's a great easy lunch for work...put PB on both pieces of bread then the jam in between so the bread doesn't get soggy.

Favorite treat is PB&J on toast.

Drooling

For a rich flavor sensation, PB on one slice and a skim of butter on the other. Jam in between.
The butter adds a richness to the sammitch. Yes

And, yes, PB&J on toast (or English muffins) is super comfort food. Drooling

Guess you're in a bit of a jam then.


I really like both PB and jam/jelly/etc but I can't stand PB&J sandwiches. Either alone is fine but the two tastes just do NOT go together.

Every country has this thing called "Weirdo". I agree, but when you go to China more things that are so so weird especially in foods.
