Solving Seperation Issues with Peanut Butter

When purchasing pregnant lady pants this last winter, I was suckered into a subscription of Parents magazine. (Sidenote: the gift with purchase was a cupcake cookbook. Because we all know the #1 thing a new mom with a baby, a husband, and a house to keep fed and clean has time to do is make intricately decorated dessert products?!?) I knock it because I don’t want to be that lady, but in fact, I have learned a lot through this subscription. (See also: I am old.)

For the most part, I’ve learned schedules and little games I should be playing with Eggroll, but this little nugget has saved me and my countertops from so much sticky angst.


To keep your all-natural peanut butter from separating, store it upside down.


All of the oil wants to get to the top, which is really the bottom, so you’ll find everything a bit more mixed upon your initial opening. If it is still¬†gloopy, my next suggestion is to store it immediately in the fridge when you bring it home. True, it’s not necessary until after opening, but the cold temperatures keep everything a bit more on the solid side.

I put a dollop of peanut butter in my smoothie every morning. A greasy mess is not a great way to start the day, so this really improved my outlook on life (or at least mornings.) I hope it does the same for you!
