Ford and I were at the library this past week when I came across a copy of Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi and Other Party Recipes (Snap).
The book is aimed at kids who want to learn how to cook – from easy to more difficult. All the recipes are designed for sleep overs. Ford had a lot of fun poring over the recipes. The book isn’t long (only 32 pages!) but is laid out well and is in full color – many photos that will help small cooks succeed. If you have kids around, the book is a fun time waster.
We decided to try out the namesake recipe –
Peanut Butter And Jelly Sushi
Slices of bread
Peanut or nut butter
Jam or jelly of choice
On a cutting board trim the crusts off the pieces of bread so that the bread has straight edges. Take a rolling pin and lightly roll the bread flat. With a butter knife spread a little peanut butter on each piece of bread – do it thinly. Take a teaspoon or less of jam/jelly and spread on top.
Starting at the bottom (the shorter end), roll up the bread into a wheel. Using a sharp knife, carefully and quickly cut each slice of bread into 4 wheels.
Ford and I made both strawberry preserves and grape jelly versions.
