Store Natural Peanut Butter Upside Down--Then Stir & Refrigerate
Members Were Sparked
Natural peanut butter doesn't contain added oils, but it does require regular stirring, especially when you first buy it. That can be messy and difficult. So each time I buy a new jar, I store it in my pantry upside down until I'm ready to use it. That mixes the oil better for easier stirring!
When you finally open the jar, use a butter knife to stir the oil throughout the jar until it's well mixed. Then store your mixed peanut butter in the fridge and the oils will not separate!

As a natural peanut butter lover, I needed an easier& less messy way to mix the peanut butter from a new jar. If you've ever tried it, you know that the oil is at the top, and it's virtually impossible to mix it in the jar. I POUR it into a measuring cup, mix it, and then pour it back into the original jar. Once it's refrigerated, it no longer separates. 467
Eat a tablespoon of natural peanut butter and 1/2 cup of cottage cheese before bed!
Sounds odd....but the combination gives you the right amount of proteins and fat that digest very slowly. This will keep your metabolism going till morning! Weight Lifters use this to keep their furnaces running.
