This play on the classic sandwich by Grant Achatz features neither peanut butter nor jelly but tastes just like the familiar combination.

  1. 16 green grapes, peeled
  2. 1 teaspoon minced tarragon
  3. 1/4 teaspoon Blis Elixir vinegar (see Note)
  4. Freshly ground pepper
  5. 12 thin baguette slices
  6. 1 tablespoon roasted peanut oil
  7. Maldon salt, for serving
  1. Preheat the oven to 325°. In a small bowl, using a fork, crush the peeled grapes. Stir in the minced tarragon and vinegar. Season with pepper.
  2. Brush the baguette slices with the peanut oil and toast in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, until they are crisp. Top with the crushed grapes, sprinkle with Maldon salt and serve.
Notes Blis Elixir is a brand of aged sherry vinegar. It’s available at blisgourmet.com.
