This next short video on how to easily stir natural peanut butter in our You Tube series of easy kitchen tips again highlights an oldie-but-goodie around here. Meaning, I posted about it years ago (see it here, with all my cost savings, extra tips and more wordiness…), and still use this every time I open a new jar of peanut butter or any nut butter. These are the kind of tips that even though small, they are worth repeating to a potentially new audience because they really do make life just a little bit easier.
In the original post, my sister-in-law gave me this idea after I complained about how hard it was to stir those HUGE jars of peanut butter from warehouse stores like Costco. Since then they stopped carrying them for awhile and we became fans of Kirkland’s Valencia Peanut Butter that you buy in two smaller containers. Even though they’re smaller, they are still too big to really stir all the way to the bottom, so I still use this technique – especially because I’ve also found that:
- Stirring it thoroughly like this keeps it from separating as quickly.
- It’s the only way, really, to stir nut butters that have sat on the shelf for awhile and have the cement-like portion on the bottoms.
- It’s great as you grow older and have a harder time stirring – no need to resort to fake “no-stir natural” nut butters (check the labels – anything other than nuts and salt and it’s not a natural nut butter!)
