Giant peanut butter sandwich

I am looking for a book that I friend and I both remember from our childhood. We were born in the mid 70s so the publication date would be in the early 80s or before.

The book was a silly children's story with illustrations and it involves the construction of a giant peanut butter and jelly sandwich, so big that we think there we remember a scene with a helicopter lifting a slice of bread.

Some initial google searching has only come up with a book by Nadine Wescott called Peanut Butter and Jelly and making a sandwich as big as a table with help from elephants. Based on the descriptions, that is not the book I'm thinking of. I don't remember any of the text, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't written in rhyme as Wescott's book is.

Edit: 
Book identified as The Giant Jam Sandwich by John Vernon Lord in one of the communities where I cross-posted. Thanks.
