The first time I open the jar I spend 2-3 energetic minutes stirring it
up with a heavyweight dull-edged knife: cutting and pulling canyons to
let the oil run down, reaching down to the bottom to pull the "paste" up
to the top, and stirring to mix it all-- all rather carefully, esp. at
the beginning, to keep the oil from spilling out onto the counter. Then
I store it in the fridge, as the label says to do, which tends to
prevent it from separating again, but I still give it a "vertical stir"
or two each time I use it. I can't stand the sweetened brands any more.
But I don't like the totally unsalted ones either. Hmm... what brand AM
I using? (go to fridge)
Teddie (super chunky, my favorite) Old Fashioned Peanut Butter. Stir
well before using. Oil separation is natural. Non-homogenized. No
preservatives. Ingredients: roasted peanuts, salt.
