One of my kids favorite treats is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Now imagine a peanut butter spread that is sweet enough on it's own that you really don't miss the jelly. Imagine that you could almost eat it by the spoonful (though not recommended of course).
I got a few Amish cookbooks for Christmas and in the midst of all the delicious recipes, some known some new to me, I found the recipe for this peanut butter spread which my kids LOVE.
I tried it a few years ago when it was gifted to me by a friend. Unfortunately I don't live near an Amish community or I would have already bought more, but I'm glad that I can now make it at home.
It is usually served at Amish gatherings, especially on Church days where it will be served on homemade bread. It is also good on cakes, crackers, even pancakes.
Amish Church Peanut Butter Spread
1 C light Karo syrup

May refrigerate; let sit at room temperature a few minutes before using for sandwiches.
Note: I don't refrigerate mine, I keep it in mason jars tightly closed.
