Peanuts are a delightful and filling snack, except for one problem…
It accumulates at the bottom of the container, working its way under your fingernails and appearing on your keyboard hours or even weeks after you’ve finished your nutty treat.
Luckily,loopfy’s very own Meg Cramer is both a podcast producer and a peanut enthusiast.
And because Meg is not content to live anything other than her best life, she found a solution.
She drilled holes in the cap (use goggles or other eye protection!) too small for the peanuts to fall through but wide enough to shake the dust out. If you tend to buy the same size jar, Meg suggests saving the lid and just swapping it in as needed. This’ll work on pretty much any jar where the accumulation of detritus at the end is just too much to handle. (It’s also how I turned a Mason jar into a snail terrarium, but that’s a little different.)
And there’s no need to throw out the peanut dust once you’ve collected it; you can always save it to use on ice cream or oatmeal or ramen or whatever else your peanut-loving heart desires, far from all the crevices in which it used to burrow.
Now go forth and conquer.
