This Little Tip Will Blow Your Mind!
For as long as I can remember, peanut butter has been a staple in my diet. Peanut butter on bread, peanut butter and fluff sandwiches, and admittedly even directly out of the jar with a spoon. Up until today I have pretty much considered myself a peanut butter aficionado, however I am about to share an extremely useful piece of information about our favorite little treat.
PureWow shared with us a tip on how to properly store our peanut butter jars. Get ready for it, upside down! There is now no more need to jam your spoon in the jar and make a mess out of all of the oil on top, or get such a heavy workout in trying to churn the hardened peanut butter at the bottom.
If you are a true peanut butter fan, you know that when you buy natural peanut butter there is a pool of oil on the top, you need to carefully stir it all up to get it mixed properly. This churning is annoying, but necessary. When you store it upside down, the oil distributes itself evenly through the jar instead of pooling itself at the top.
Another trick to make sure the oil does not pool at the top is to keep it in the refrigerator upside down. Now you will avoid messing with the oil at top and it results in creamier peanut butter overall. A win win!
