Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly

Camping is the time you get to indulge in your favorite treats knowing you are going to work off any guilt. Choose your favorite flavor of jam and decide if you want to go chunky or creamy for the peanut butter. 

This favorite of kids, and kids at heart, the toasted peanut butter and jelly sandwich makes a great dessert or sweet treat. We’ve used raisin bread here, but you can use your favorite type of bread.

This trick (if there is one) is to make sure that the grill isn’t too hot. All the sugar in the bread means it can caramelize (burn) very quickly even before the center has had time to warm up.

Make sure to let the sandwich cool slightly before eating, otherwise you could burn your tongue on the hot jam.
