Lisa asks: What’s your favorite way to eat peanut butter—PB&J or something outside the box?

A great way to eat peanut butter is in oatmeal with a half a banana and a table spoon full of your favorite jelly. My preference is grape.

Kind of related but not ... how long can I store peanut butter, and does it need to be refrigerated? I read the natural peanut butter (the kind where the oil pools to the top after sitting for awhile) should be refrigerated after opening, since the oil can become rancid. I didn't even know oil could become rancid to begin with?!

But anyways, my fridge is already packed full. Should I make room for the peanut butter, or is it fine in the cupboard?
