Peanut Butter and Jelly Burger from Blackwell's Pub in Birmingham, Alabama

In her review of Blackwell's Pub in Birmingham Weekly, Molly Folse recommends a few of the unique burgers on their menu—including the PB&J burger made with smooth peanut butter and blackberry jam. Chef Tyler DeStefano says they spent two weeks trying different jams and peanut butters to settle on their current formula:

'Some people like crunchy, but it just doesn’t work with the burger,' DeStefano says. 'The blackberry is sweet enough to complement the peanut butter and beef, but not too sweet. Some customers are scared of it, but once they eat it they love it.

Has anyone else tried or make their own peanut butter and jelly burgers?
