Theme : One Category - Bread Sandwiches
Sub Theme - Sandwich Platters

We move on to the 11th day in our Cooking Carnival and I am working on Sandwich Platters this week, where I am posting recipes either with different sandwiches or sandwich related recipes.

Today I have two jam sandwiches, actually come to think of it , it is no big deal making these sandwiches. They are simple bread , butter and jam. Even a kid can make these.So why am I posting these? That too for Mega Marathon? Home made Jams are the highlight of this post. I had never made jams and it was my very first trial and I was very happy with both. They turned out delicious.

Food Craft has always attracted me, while I made jam from grapes and strawberries, I thought of using the same two fruits for these cute little caterpillars.

The key to a good basic jam sandwich is a good quality bread. The bread should be super soft . The sides should be trimmed , it should have a good layer of butter and then a layer of jam.

Bring together both the slices to make a sandwich.
