Peanut Butter and Jelly Pamonha Recipe

Ingredients with Measurements:
- 6 ears of corn, husked and kernels removed
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup grape jelly
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon salt

Special equipment needed:
- Blender or food processor
- Large pot
- Parchment paper
- Steamer basket

Step-by-step instructions:

1. In a blender or food processor, blend the corn kernels until smooth.

2. In a large pot, combine the blended corn, peanut butter, grape jelly, milk, sugar, melted butter, and salt. Stir well to combine.

3. Place the pot over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and pulls away from the sides of the pot, about 30-40 minutes.

4. While the pamonha is cooking, cut parchment paper into 6-inch squares.

5. When the pamonha is done cooking, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly.

6. To assemble, spoon about 1/4 cup of the pamonha mixture onto a parchment square. Fold the parchment around the pamonha and twist the ends to seal.

7. Place the pamonhas in a steamer basket and steam for 20-25 minutes, or until heated through.

8. Serve the peanut butter and jelly pamonhas warm.
