Food safety question: nut butters

I like minimally processed almond or peanut butter, but most of them need stirring every time you want to use them.
I've tried some no-stir brands and they're ok, but not quite as good (IMO).

Food safety: can I take all of the peanut or almond butter out of the manufacturers jar, stir it really well (maybe even use a hand mixer) then store it in a mason jar instead?

I'm assuming everything needs to be sterilized and squeaky clean, but is there anything else?
Like, would I need to store it in the refrigerator after I did that?
Thanks

I don't see what the difference would be if everything is clean to begin with. If you stir it every time you are incorporating whatever germs are on the implement anyway.

After you stir, store it upside down. That way any oil that separates is in the bottom of the jar. Unless it is enough to affect the rest of the butter, it won't matter on the bottom.

why do you want to put it in another jar? does the brand not come in a glass jar? mine does - smuckers is my favorite, but I eat it right out of the jar - way too fast

If you stir it then put it into the fridge, it shouldn't separate again.

When I buy a jar, I bring it home and store it upside down until I need to use it. Oil is all at the bottom that way, and much easier to stir. Once stirred, it needs to live in the fridge to keep it from separating (but you can leave it out a few minutes to soften enough to spread when you use it).

Make sure the inner seal if fully intact and/or that the top is somewhat leak proof. I have had the oil leak out on a new jar inverted. I do not recall the brand. Perhaps invert in a bowl to be safe.

I agree that this is the best way to do it.
