“Simon and Garfunkel” PB Sandwich

CREAMY-CRUNCHYAuthor Jon Krampner, who recently released the new book “Creamy & Crunchy, An Informal History of Peanut Butter, The All-American Food,” sent us his original sandwich recipe “The Simon and Garfunkel” in honor of National Peanut Butter Lovers Month! The recipe was inspired by Simon and Garfunkel’s famous song “Scarborough Fair.” Just as the lyrics read “Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme” Jon included those same herbs to create this delicious sandwich.

Jon’s book was also reviewed by The New Yorker just yesterday —click here to read the favorable review!
