    OK- this is not chicken related.... but we use all natural peanut butter. So, the oil settles on the top when you get it from the store. Whenever I try mixing it (fork or knife) I ALWAYS get the oil over the edge of the jar and make a mess. Is there any hope for mixing peanut butter without making a huge oily mess? Help.... clueless on mixing cleanly.

    I have the same problem! [​IMG]

    I have seen a gadget for sale online, it's a replacement top/lid for the jar with a handle on top and a "mixing wire" down it the peanut butter. Supposedly, you just crank the handle and it mixes the PB. Haven't tried it. Yet. I believe some are new and some are actual vintage ones. Check ebay and etsy.com. [​IMG]

    Maybe after you mix it once, you can place the jar of PB in the fridge so you don't have to worry about mixing each time.

    YIKES!!! I found a new one on ebay- and THEY WANT $17.88 FOR IT!!! At that price, it'd better be gold plated. [​IMG]

    If you turn the jar upside down, does the oil move back through the peanutbutter so you could stir it once it is on the bottom or somehwere inbetween?

    I have the same problem. Also, I don't seem to be able to get enough of the oil down to the bottom of the jar so when I reach the last 1/3 of the peanut butter it is always very dry since all the oil is long gone by then. [​IMG]
