Finally, An Advancement In Peanut Butter Jar Technology
Consumerist.com ^ | July 26, 2013 | Laura Northrup

Posted on 07/28/2013 5:46:57 AM PDT by Daffynition

Does that last bit of mayonnaise or peanut butter at the bottom of a jar really bother you? I usually hand the jar over to my dog and let her take care of it, but for some reason not everyone has a dog. That’s why some entrepreneurs have harnessed the technology behind deodorant sticks to eliminate this problem.

I have no idea how long that pie will last in the fridge. Everyone I've made so far has been devoured within two days, or frozen portions saved in plastic containers. But that's just the way things run in a bachelor’s house.

My house is different, certainly not a bachelor’s house. Been married to the same woman 42 years. My son stays with us part of the time, when he is not at the farm.

Have my father over pretty often for meals. We work together almost every day. My mother died about this time last year. They were married 66 years. His loss is great. Devastating.

We have other family locally. So our house is not quiet. hee hee hee

After two marriages, I enjoy the peace and quiet ... I can always go visit the grandkids and get a dose of chaos in motion.

Right on. We play the recycle game at home for one reason. My town charges for trash by the bag. Recycling is free but there is absolutely no way in the world I’m using my resources that I pay for (water) to clean out trash.

I also love peace & quiet.

I live in the middle of “The Big Nothing”.

hee hee hee

Clear skies, open spaces, few people, good neighbors.

From the house at the farm, it is a mile to the nearest neighbor.

Peanut butter on sliced bananas with no bread is the only way to go.

Exactly. Just put it in a tub like whipped butter. Fancy containers only raise the price.

I’m a Jif Creamy user, so no worries, so far. Sunland Corp, the mfgr for Trade Joe’s and Skippy, was the culprit of the salmonella contamination. Even the Talenti Peanut Crunch Gelato, here in PA, was impacted by it, and I’d bought some for Dad and myself, but caught it in time by Lot #, to return it to the store, still sealed. Close call.

Nope, haven’t tried that one yet. I do use the glass jars left from the salsa I buy. I cook bacon in the jar; three slices with the jar laid on its side then microwave for three minutes. Put a piece of paper towel in the jar first, then lay the bacon atop the paper. I sometimes cook things in the jars (like cake in a pressure cooker) since they’re made for canning. The jars even have the measurements on the side. The brand is Wal Mart’s ‘Great Value’ label. My favorite is Lime and Garlic.

Yes! JPB framed him for posterity. His portrait should be on the wall of the post office with the *Most Wanted* criminals.

I asked the store mgr, where I’d bought/returned it, if he’d heard the FDA test results of and of the tests, and he said that kind of info never filters down to him. Just glad I caught it.
