Blasted jar of peanut butter

I don't like it when a jar gets down real low. I want to get them used up so I can throw them away. Just a me thing. I keep eating peanut butter in many ways to get this jar emptied. It is never ending though. I eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, peanut butter on crackers, peanut butter on celery. No matter how much I eat there is still peanut butter in that jar. Ever had this problem?

That is when I mix up a batch of peanut butter cookies and finish the jar!

There wasn't enough left in that jar but I do have a full one and peanut butter cookies sound real good.

@SonjaRae I just might make some tomorrow. I haven't baked any cookies for the grandkids and I know that they would love them.

My problem is the jar design. They're all plastic now, and have all these little ridges up the sides of the jar and a raised bottom with a moat all around it. I don't stop till every shred of peanut butter is gone, no matter how long it takes me to get into all those nooks and crannies.

@Raelove Well I don't have to worry about that one anymore. I keep the shelves pretty well stocked so I have another one to replace it.

We do not buy peanut butter, when a jar of jam gets down, I usually make a pie, so I use all the jam in the jar.

That is a good way to use up the jam and you have a pie.

@velvet53 It's the best way to empty the jar, sometimes I place apple slices atop of the jam, if it's apricot jam, it's very good.

there are people here at home who buy or cook stuff, then don't finish it because it wasn't what they expected or they're tired of it already. they like to experiment or try new stuff, but it's not their problem how to use it all up or dispose it. sigh...

@toniganzon I don't use a lot of honey. I usually end up giving it to the kids so it doesn't go to waste. It is a pain when it gets down to the end of the bottle.

Why you want to end up so quickly Usually I won't be so eager to end up something. I can't remember any such things at present.

I wouldn't mind having a problem like that - the longer it lasts keeps me from spending money to replace it.

I don't know why it is, but when there's about an inch or so left in a jar of peanut butter or jelly, I usually end up throwing it away. I know it's still good, but I just get this urge to open a new one...

I am that way also but I force myself to wait. I don't like it when a jar gets down that low when I have a full one waiting.

I love PB & jelly sandwiches. Actually, I just love peanut butter. My problem is running out of it and forgetting to buy more. To get the last of the peanut butter out of the jar I use a frosting spreader. It's long, has a wide blade and is rounded on the end - perfect for getting into the rounded bottom of the jar. I guess my problem is the opposite of yours.

Yes are problems are opposites. I never thought of using a frosting spreader. You just made things easier for me.

@velvet53 I'm glad I helped. LOL I used to get so aggravated trying to get the PB out of the bottom of the jar. The knife would only get a little at a time, but my frosting spreader is one with a long flat blade about an inch and a quarter wide. It gets a whole lot of PB at one time out of the bottom.
