I can't decide if it's a matter of preference or if it has to be refrigerated. When I opened mine today it was really separated and the solid parts were tough to stir though, so I'm thinking no fridge? Help me out PPK experts. Thanks!

i never refrigerate mine & have never had a problem -- but i do know plenty of people who refrigerate theirs (which is not helpful, i know!). i also don't refrigerate peanut butter, so maybe you can look to your own peanut butter storage habits for the answer?

if you know you're going to use the tahini a day or so in advance & it is all separated like that, turning it upside down & leaving it that way overnight is really helpful.

i refrigerate it and my peanut butter, but my tahini is also pretty liquidy, so i don't have a problem with separating and hard parts.

I don't refrigerate it, but it still separates. Maybe I should be?

I don't refrigerate mine (or any nut butters) but mine separates too. I figured that just had to do with the brand.

I fridge all my nut butters...actually I fridge everything, even stuff that goes in for no good reason, like pretzels, crackers, coconut butter. It does get tough to stir the tahini and certain nutbuts but I do it really hard when it first goes in, then I try to do it regularly after that.

I keep mine in the fridge. Only because I keep all my nut butters in the fridge since they say to once opened, and it just became habit to stick anything like a nut butter in the fridge. Not sure if it actually says so on the jar or not, though.

Ha. All nuts go in the freezer over here. So do choc chips and dates for some reason.

I refrigerate mine, as well as all nut butters. All nuts and seeds in non-butter form go into the freezer.

i'm keeping mine in the fridge right now, only because the jar tells me to. (the company nuts to you). i don't refrigerate any other nut butters and would prefer not to. i like when they're kind of runny and delicious.

I've never refrigerated mine. It still separates - I thought that was just what tahini did. And I've never even thought about refrigerating peanut or nut butters - though after reading this thread I am starting to think maybe I have been doing it wrong all these years!

I don't refrigerate mine, but my house mate does! I guess it depends on 1. how quickly you use your tahini and 2. the climate of where you live. For example, I go through mine within a month or two and live in a temperate climate, so I don't see any need to refrigerate mine. However, if you were going to be keeping it for much longer or live in a warmer climate, I'd worry about the oils going rancid, so would probably keep it in the fridge.

i always read the package to see if they want me to refrigerate it or not - the one i have now (ziyad) didn't say to so I don't. i'd rather not - hard enough to stir them room temp!

I used to be a no fridge, but now I'm a fridge. It doesn't seem easier to stir, though... now it's just cold.

i fridge mine, but it never separates...it's pretty liquid-y though. i pretty much refrigerate anything that it says to on the jar. so, all my nut butters except the cheap asparagus peanut butter i buy that stays in the cupboard for a year.
