LEAVENWORTH — There’s a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that Gregory Lebovitz will likely never forget, even though he doesn’t remember how it tasted.

“You know how when you eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich you always notice the peanut butter to jelly ratio?” Lebovitz asked. “I can’t tell you any of that detail.”
