You can copy and paste variation of following code in browser console and try it out. I guess this can be called "JSON Peanut Butter and Jelly test" :P

     var Ingredients = {"Bread":{"slices":2},"Peanut Butter":{"jar":1},"Jam":{"jar":1}};


Ingredients["Peanut Butter"]["jar"];


var Parsable = JSON.stringify(Ingredients);
