I love my natural peanut butter, but I Hate stirring the new jars! It's difficult, time consuming, and almost always messy.
I've tried a variety of methods to simplify the task. I've tried using wooden spoons, rubber spatulas (fail: the business end actually fell off and got buried in the jar for a week!), and even a Pampered Chef tool meant for breaking up hamburger. I've switched from the enormous 5 pound jars to the smaller 2.5 pound ones, just 'cause they're a bit easier.
Nothing really helps. I always spill some oil, and the bottom inch of peanut butter is always hard and dry.
In any case, I almost always remember to store the unopened jars upside down, just so the oil is at the bottom instead of splashing out as soon as I open it. But last time I shoved a couple of jars in the pantry, it was quite cluttered and, quite by accident, they ended up on their sides.
The only question I have for myself is "Why did it take me so long to figure that out?!"
The best part? Now I can stop trying to talk myself into purchasing one of these shanzzy hand mixers built right into a jar lid!
