Happy National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day! We're here to help you celebrate... with peanut butter and jelly recipes, of course!
Sure, you can go out and buy the spreads, but why not get creative -- like, DIY creative -- and make your own? Believe it or not, homemade jams, jellies and nut butters aren't that difficult to do from scratch (if you want to make your own bread for a sandwich, well, that'll be a little more time-consuming).
Check out the photo gallery above for recipes for 14 jams, jellies and preserves -- we include traditional options, such as strawberry, as well as more adventurous offerings (such as the insanely good coconut jam from Susan Fenniger's Street).
And check out our how-to video on homemade nut butters! Make your own peanut butter, or think outside the box with oh, say, almond or hazelnut butter.
