I bought some peanut butter today that says to refrigerate after opening. Is that really necessary?
I don't like cold peanut butter and would rather keep it in the pantry.

I never put peanut butter in the refrigerator. I buy salted all-natural. I think sometimes those things are on there, not really because they have to be, but because if someone does something dumb and tries to sue them, they've covered their backs legally with the label. If you go to Europe you'd be amazed at what doesn't go in their refrigerators! I know I was! lol

The name of the peanut butter is 'Naturally More'.
I guess it's something new as I haven't seen it before but it's a healthier version of peanut butter with none of the extra added stuff they put in regular peanut butter.

The reason to refrigerate it is to keep the oil and the ground nuts emulsified. Mine goes in the fridge in the summer for that reason; in the winter it's not necessary.

Stuff like Skippy is processed to keep it all mixed up.

Shudder. I hate that stuff. I grew up on it. To make matters worse, Dad would pour out some of the oil that accumulates on the top to make it healthier. TRY SPREADING THAT ON BREAD WITHOUT BREAKING IT, I DARE YOU!


I am all about the Jif now, which should never be refrigerated.

The stuff with the oil on top needs to be stirred up...lol It must have been like peanut butter cement Debsi!
Trick I've found -If your lid will take it without leaking, keeping the jar turned upside down keep the oil from accumulating on the top and keeps it creamy when you go to use it.

That's a good description, cement! lol. I would try your trick, but Dad's experiments will probably keep me off natural peanut butter for life.
