On occasion I will pack a peanut butter and honey sandwich for lunch, and inevitably, the honey leaks out into my Tupperware container and gets my sandwich all messy.
Today I tried an experiment.
Normally, I put peanut butter on one piece of bread, put the honey on the same piece, and put the plain bread slice on top, pressing the edges so (I’m hoping, anyway) the honey gets “sealed” in. It’s a decent method, but the honey leaks through the bread so my sandwich kind of crystallizes, and there’s always some leaked honey in the Tupperware container. I figured I could improve on this method.
This morning, I put peanut butter on both pieces of bread, applied some honey on one, and used the other peanut-buttery bread slice on top of the honey. I figure, heck, there’s no way this honey is leaking through the bread.
I was right, but judging from my Tupperware container at the moment, the peanut butter layers provided a neat path for the honey to squish directly out the edges, leaving near-to-none in the center of the sandwich. It was far, far worse than the previous incarnation.
Is there a secret to the PB&H sandwich that I just don’t know? A secret that will leave my bread fluffy and my Tupperware container free of leaked honey? I rarely have these problems with jam.
