I wish Burke was still here.  We wouldn't be talking about silly jams/jellies and would be sticking to a good old discussion on chunky peanut butter.

What is stickier?  Not many of Burke's picks seemed to have stuck around anymore.  :(

Nut butter is a valid category to include in the ranking of jams (traditional), jams (savoury), jellies, and chutneys.

What about other butters/spreads? Where would various cookie butters fit in? Nutella? Reese's spread?

Nutella is a nut butter already, so it should slot in pretty high in that category.

Cookie butters don't really fit. They're not made of crushed plant gonads.

Technically, they are. They're made of flour, which is crush wheat gonad.

I'm going to need to see a published report that explicitly links flour to wheat gonad.

Is cookie butter a common thing? I've never even heard of it until now.

Fair point, I thought it was less direct, but a gonad's a gonad. Is the plant origin something that should be distinguished? Tree/Bush/Vine vs Grass/Grain? Do we make botanical or culinary distinctions?

Pretty common in European fare. It was hard to find here in Toronto when I last looked about 4 years ago. Seems more common now, i.e. PC has commissioned a reverse-engineered version.

There's not much of a discussion to be had there. There are people who prefer chunky peanut butter and people who are wrong.

It's definitely becoming easier to find here, but we still don't have the variety offered at Trader Joe's.

It's not as good by the spoonful as I hoped, but, as an actual spread, I find it's a pretty solid recreation of the peanut butter cups.
