We made this recipe when we were in Cologne because we wanted to try rhubarb for the first time by making something delicious for you guys and we absolutely LOVED it! It’s our take on the classic peanut butter jelly sandwich, but we’ve used homemade rhubarb jelly and added a cooked banana too, so delicious!
Rhubarb is not a common ingredient here in Spain, it’s very hard to find in fact, so when we saw it in a supermarket, we knew we had to buy it. Luckily, we found it at a local market in Spain (yay!) and yesterday I made another batch of this amazing jelly. It’s the best jelly I’ve ever tried and it’s made with natural ingredients.
Homemade peanut butter is great, you only need peanuts to make it, and it’s the healthiest peanut butter you can eat. If you don’t want to make it at home, at least try to avoid those made with nasty ingredients like preservatives or hydrogenated oils.
Rhubarb is so pretty! It looks like celery to me, but it tastes totally different. I would appreciate it if you could share some recipe ideas with this amazing ingredient, just leave a comment and let me know. Thanks for your help guys!
- Don’t cook the banana if you want to save time, just use it raw.
- Feel free to use any other gelatin or nut butter (I really like almond butter).
- If you can’t get rhubarb, use strawberries or any berry.
Peanut butter and rhubarb jelly sandwich
This is our version of the classic peanut butter jelly sandwich, but we’ve used homemade rhubarb jelly and added a cooked banana as well.
Avoid screen dimming
Cut the banana into two pieces. Then cut each piece lengthwise.
Heat some water in a pan and when it’s hot, add the banana pieces. Cook over medium-high heat until golden brown on both sides.
Heat the bread in a pan or toaster.
Spread the peanut butter on a slice of bread, add the jelly and top with two pieces of banana. Then cover with another slice of bread. This recipe makes two sandwiches, so repeat this process.
For the rhubarb jelly:
Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and let them boil.
Cook over medium-high heat for 25 minutes or until done.
Mash the fruit with a fork for a better texture.
Transfer it to a glass container and let it cool.
