While uncommon, changes in texture and consistency, including oil separation, and drying and
hardening, can occur with all-natural nut butters, including ours, especially if the product has been subjected to extreme changes in climate and temperature (going from room temperature to hot or cold and vice versa). Extreme changes in climate and temperature can happen during shipping and during storage at distribution warehouses and retail stores, which you may note in your batch of Barney Butter.
Usually when this occurs the product can be stirred quite easily! If you find your butter to be more runny than you would like, try placing it in the fridge for an about an hour and then stirring the butter together.
