How to Mix Oil that’s been Separated from Peanut Butter?

To mix peanut butter that has separated, you can try the following steps:

  1. Place the jar of peanut butter at room temperature for a few minutes to soften the oil. This can make it easier to mix.
  2. Remove the lid and stir the peanut butter with a spoon or knife. If the peanut butter is stiff to stir, you can use a spatula or a fork to loosen it.
  3. Continue stirring until the oil is incorporated into the peanut butter and the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  4. If the peanut butter is still too thick, you can try adding oil to help thin it out. Just be sure to use a neutral oil such as canola or vegetable oil, as other types of oil may alter the peanut butter flavor.
  5. Once the peanut butter is fully mixed, replace the lid and store it in the pantry or refrigerator until ready to use.

One Simple Trick To Keep Your Peanut Butter From Separating

So you’ve had a jar of peanut butter that’s been sitting on your shelf for a few months, and you’re ready to open it. But then… the jar starts to separate. You try shaking it, but nothing works.

What do you do?

We have the solution! Put the jar upside down to prevent your peanut butter from separating.

When peanut butter is in contact with air for too long, it can separate into layers. When this happens, you’ll see an oil layer on top of the jar. The trick is to put the jar upside down so that peanut butter remains solid on top. This makes sure that your peanut butter is nice, creamy and spreadable. When you’re ready to spread peanut butter on your crackers, turn the jar upright and open the lid slowly. Mission accomplished.

This simple trick works on all types of natural nut butter, including almonds and cashew. Just make sure the ingredients are just nuts and oil.
