Keeping Natural Peanut Butter Spreadable

After stirring in the oil that collects at the top our jar of natural peanut butter, we store natural peanut butter in the refrigerator. The problem is, it promptly gets very hard and difficult to spread. We soften it by heating the jar in the microwave for 15-30 seconds. When we refrigerate it again, the peanut butter left in the jar does not harden for several days and spreads evenly, even when cold.

That's really interesting that it stays soft for several days after zapping it in the microwave! I wonder why?
