Quick Answers

 

 

Can peanut butter be frozen?


Peanut butter could be frozen to extend its shelf life. However, because the fat in peanut butter would become rancid even at cold temperatures, it would be best to use the product within a few months. Storage in refrigerator extends shelf life of opened product.
