Adams Natural Peanut Butter Tips:
-Before opening, Adams can be stored on the pantry shelf. After opening store in the refrigerator.
-Adams is free of stabilizers so the oil, naturally occurring in peanuts separates – that’s why we flip the jar and store it upside-down for easy and less messy stirring.
-Did you know there is such a thing as a peanut butter mixer? Yes! If you don’t want to flip the jar, you can purchase a mixer at most kitchen gadget and appliance stores so that you’ll also have a well-blended peanut butter.
-There is a real Adam behind the brand. Adams has a proud and natural heritage and was founded in 1916 by Rex F. Adams, a local Tacoma, Washington football coach.
Adams is available at select grocery stores, except in Quebec and the Maritimes, and retails for $4.99-$5.99/500 g. More recipes can also be found at Adamspeanutbutter.ca.
