Although an interesting thread, I was going to comment. BUT...

Since the primary focus of the subject is "peanut butter", I believe the
sub-topics of jam/jelly/etc. could be organized using the following Chapter
I) Creamy Peanut Butter
4) etc. (has anyone mentioned bananas?)
II) Crunchy Peanut Butter
NOTE: Consistent alignment of sub-topics enables rapid location of subject
This type of organization lets the writer add additional sub-ingredients as
needed. You know from experience the SMEs are going to add more ingredients
about 10 seconds after you "finish" the document.
Of course, I haven't address the matter of bread selection. My favorite is
Honey Wheat Berry! With that, I really don't need the "crunch" of crunchy
peanut butter. However, the texture and crunch differences make it an
interesting variation on a theme.
