    Question regarding Peanut Butter.

    This may be a silly question but I wanted to know what type of peanut butter will last the longest, preferably one that doesn't contain any sugar and would keep it's consistency and remain spreadable for a long period of time.

    I used to buy the all natural kind with the oil on top that needs to be mixed before use but I came to the realization that these types, if left to sit for too long will harden and solidify and become very difficult to mix later on. These types are also more expensive and I am really watching my budget and I want to make the best choices at the cheapest prices.

    Any suggestions for a good inexpensive peanut butter without sugar or other unwanted additives that will last and remain spreadable? Or should I just stick with Peter Pan, Jiffy, etc.?

    standard retail type peanut butter has too much oils & fats content for long term storage - stock dehydrated canned and re-hydrate & mix as needed ....

    Perhaps I should've specified the time frame. I am not talking about decades worth of storage only a few years tops but thanks for the info. I was unaware there was dehydrated "prepper" peanut butter on the market.

    There sure is, and I am glad! Peanut butter is an important part of any Southerner's preps!

    Denton, don't try to "Bogart" it for the south. Us over here in Jefferson love it also. It is a big part of our diets.

    OK, so we're talking about one year here unopened for the standard Peter Pan, Jiffy, stuff. The natural stuff doesn't even last half that long which is what I figured. However, the expiration dates are probably manufacturer recommended which means it could probably go for another 6 months to a year after that which is about as long as I could possibly expect to be around in my current situation if SHTF. Thanks for the info.

    Oils go rancid very quickly. That's the problem. Peanut butter has a lot of oil.
