How to stir peanut butter like a redneck

It’s natural and it’s separated!

That oil rises to the top, and the thick stuff gets thicker and thicker on the bottom until sometimes, it’s downright impossible to mix well with just a knife. 

**Pro Redneck Tip—store your natural PB or almond butter upside down to make the oil go to the bottom.  This makes it easier to stir.  This jar was just bought, so it’s not been stored that way!  **

You have several options:

  • Eat lumpy peanut butter
  • Keep on trying with a knife
  • Use the “How to stir peanut butter like a redneck” method  (recommended highly by any self-respecting redneck)

This is a super fast and surprisingly easy way to take care of that lumpy, bumpy, oily mess so you can get to spreading on your PB&J!

  2. Hahahaha, how cool!
    I have a cookie recipe with natural cashew butter, and since it goes into the batter, I use a hand mixer anyway.

  3. OMG I’ll take the Redneck way any day! As for storing it upside down, I do that with anything that has liquid that sett led on top, especially kidney beans.
