Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
Delicious and Fascinating
The first mention of peanut butter sandwiches with jelly in them was in the Boston Cooking-School Magazine of Culinary Science and Domestic Economics in 1901.
A 2002 survey showed that the average American eats 2,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by the end of high school.
The prevalence rate of peanut allergies in the United States, according to the National Institute of Health, is .6%.
The difference between jam and jelly
Jelly is made from the sweetened juice of the fruit and jams are generally made from the juice and the flesh of the fruit.
