Natural peanut butter - brands like Smuckers, Adams, Laura Scudders, I think even Krogers and Best Choice now also have a "natural peanut butter" - peanuts and salt, or maybe peanuts, oil, and salt - they WILL separate. The oil rises to the top. Once you get it stirred up to your liking, it's best to refrigerate to a) help it stay mixed up and b) help it stay fresher. They don't have preservatives so they will not be really shelf stable once the jar is opened. I've used the natural peanut butters nearly all my life, ever since my mom would buy it by the case in the 1960's from a local SDA Church's "Health Food Center".

About 10-15 years ago, I found an online source for a handy blender tool to mix my peanut butter -

Hey, I'm glad I stopped to answer this question, because now I know this company has expanded to have different sizes of blenders for the larger quart size jars!! I'll be ordering one soon! (prices are cheaper now - at the time, I got a free one and additional ones were like $14+ now all of these are $10 plus additional for shipping. wow!


interesting tidbit: Back then (1960's) Peanut Butter was defined by law as peanuts, sugar, shortening etc., so the natural health food historical peanut butter - peanuts just peeled and smashed into a pulp and eaten that way or with a little salt for flavor - was considered "Artificial"!!! Isn't that a trip? At some point in the 1970's the FDA finally got a bubble head with some common sense and re-did the peanut butter labeling, so that it would be a little bit closer to the truth!

And strengthens her arms.

Think I'll try this recipe tonight! Thanks for sharing.

Anytime I bring home natural peanut butter or anything likely to separate. I store it in the pantry or fridge UPSIDE DOWN. You still need to stir but stirring is easier. (Make sure the lid is tight but you can store it upside down in a sandwich bag just in case. The baggie also helps me remember to leave it upside down when I'm done too.)

I love Teddy’s all naturalmPB, and yes, you do have to stir it or you will end up with a few inches of dry-ish PB at the bottom.
