I’ve finally found the ultimate secret of how to mix peanut butter easily so that you only have to do it once and then your peanut butter will be nice and ready to spread for the rest of the jar. If you’ve ever bought the natural nut butter then you know all about the issues of trying to mix it. I’ve always struggled with trying to get it smooth without having the oil come out all over the sides of the jar to make a big mess. Then, every time you use it, it seems that it has gotten clumpy again so that it requires more stirring and by the time you get to the bottom of the jar the peanut butter that is left is thick and not easily spreadable. It is really the little things in life that make me happy, like only having to mix the peanut butter once.
All you need to do is use a spatula and put all the peanut butter and oil into a mixing bowl. Make sure you clean out the jar really well so that everything gets nicely incorporated.
Blend it using your hand mixer (or food processor) on medium speed and once you think it is really nicely blended, blend it just a little bit longer.
Now you’re ready to return the peanut butter to its original jar, or whatever container you want and you’ll have nice smooth peanut butter for the rest of the jar. No more mixing required! :) Time to break out the peanut butter recipes!
