Peanut butter is one of the most popular spreads on the market, and most people who love it have at least one jar at home. If you happen to be one of them, it’s time to pay closer attention to the way that you’re storing your peanut butter because it’s possible you’re not doing one of these three things.

Right Place

Storing peanut butter in a pantry is all fun and games unless you’re using natural peanut butter. Unlike the store-bought varieties, they tend to spoil pretty fast due to a high concentration of natural oils. That’s why it’s always a good idea to store them inside your fridge.

Right Side

If you’re not storing your peanut butter upside down, it’s time to give it a try. The spread may stick to the lid, but the good outweighs the bad in this case. A quick stir will leave you with the creamiest peanut butter you could possibly ask for and its oily texture will be gone.

Food Waste

Never waste away your peanut butter by throwing the jar away as soon as you’re done. There will always be some peanut butter sticking to the sides, and you can put it to some good use by tossing some additional ingredients inside and making overnight oats or chia pudding.
