Q: I love almost everything about tahini and a 2-pound jar of the stuff doesn’t last me too long! However, I guess all good things come at a cost. For tahini, it is needing to stir every new jar until thoroughly mixed, which is a time-consuming and messy task.

Do you know of a good technique for thoroughly mixing a new jar of tahini (or any other natural nut/seed butter) in an efficient, timely and tidy manner?
