Episode 13: The Great Peanut Butter Debate

Episode 13: The Great Peanut Butter Debate

In our latest episode, Aimee losses her goddamn mind trying to talk about the indigenous history of peanut butter, Melissa makes up her own cocktail called Peanut Butter Jelly Time, and Kate is back with so many questions. While answering important questions like “Who actually invented peanut butter?” Aimee brings the other dishes down a long and winding path towards the answer, covering peanut farming, slavery, and imperialism. Melissa also reveals one of her deepest peanut butter-fueled desires, and Kate grows very protective over Lord of the Rings lore. The dishes also come to an impasse when they can’t agree on which peanut butter brand reigns supreme.

Recipe: The Bourbon Brunch

Recipe: The Bourbon Brunch

The Bourbon Brunch is the cocktail featured in Episode 9 “Make America Waffles Again“. This recipe has been adapted from a recipe found at Classy Girls Wear Pearls. None of us were particularly fond of this drink. It’s best to stay away from this one unless you are a Bourbon lover.

Ingredients

4 oz. Bourbon Whiskey
1 tsp. Pure Maple Syrup
2 oz. Apple Cider
1 oz. Ginger Beer

Candied bacon* and mini-waffle for garnish.
*Recipe to follow.

Instructions

Combine all ingredients except the bubbly ginger beer in a glass. Stir to combine. Add ginger beer and garnish with bacon and toasted min-waffle.

Candied Bacon Recipe

Ingredients:
Thick Cut Bacon (I used thin since that’s what I had, but thick cut would be better)
1/4 cup Light Brown Sugar
2 tbsp. Pure Maple Syrup
1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Line a baking sheet with foil and insert a wire baking rack and lay out the bacon.
3. Bake in over for 10 minutes on each side.
4. Remove from oven and brush on sugar mixture to one side.
5. Cook for 10 minutes, remove from over and flip bacon, adding sugar mixture to the other side, and bake another 10 minutes or until you reach the desired color.
6. Allow to fully cool and harden before using as a garnish.
