How to Prevent Natural Peanut Butter Oil Spills

By Edited Feb 13, 2016 3 1

If you have ever purchased all natural peanut butter in your life, the first time you go to use it, the oil has separated from the peanut butter and is sitting on the top of the jar. If you take a spoon and try to stir it up, you always wind up spilling some of the oil all over the outside of the peanut butter container.

You could empty the peanut butter jar, re-stir the oil and the peanut butter back together again, but with all the effort required to get it back in the jar you might as well have just stirred it in the jar. If you don't feel like hand mixing it, you can use another very simple technique.

When you get home from the grocery store, flip the peanut butter

jar upside down so that it is sitting on its lid. What will happen, is the oil will disperse throughout the jar and a lot of the extra oil will makes its way down to the bottom of the jar (the part that always ends up all dry if you just remix it). You should allow your peanut butter to sit like this for at least an hour before you go to use it.

When you finally go to open your peanut butter, you will notice that there isn't an inch of peanut oil sitting at the top of the container. The peanut butter will require no mixing and is ready to eat immediately. I also suggest storing your natural peanut butter upside down to prevent the bottom peanut butter from being extremely dry.
