Peanut butter was considered a delicacy in the early 1900s and was only served in New York City’s finest tea rooms. In a May
1896 article published in the Good Housekeeping magazine, a recipe “urged homemakers to use a meat grinder to make
peanut butter and spread the result on bread.” That same year, in June, the culinary magazine Table Talk, published a “peanut
butter sandwich recipe.” It is thought to be that the first reference of peanut butter paired with jelly on bread, was by Julia Davis Chandler in 1901.
