  • Question about ghee

    Does ghee have to be refrigerated? I bought some from the local "specialized nutrition" store that they had on the regular shelves, and no where on the label does it indicate needing refrigeration. Just to be safe, I have refrigerated it, but wonder if it's really necessary.

    Thanks!

    Nope. Its just like butter (without the water) and can be left out.
    Ghee is amazing. I make my own and use it all the time. Its super delicious.

      I've been keeping it in the fridge, but I got tired of having to chip away pieces. So now it's on the counter, in an air-tight container.

        I find it's easier to spread when at room temp, so I keep my ghee in the cupboard. If you're really concerned, get a butter bell and keep it in that.

          My ghee was like a rock when I did my Whole30 in January, I HAD to keep it on the counter because the fridge was way too cold, the whole thing would come out of the container if I tried to get some out!

            That's the problem I'm having, Jackie, having to chip at it until I finally get enough. It came in a screw-top jar, so I'll put it the counter when I get home. Thanks everyone!!

              The brand I buy in the UK is called Khanum. It comes in a ring pull tin with a resealable plastic lid as well. It's best kept outside o the fridge so it's not rock hard. Keeping it dry is another good thing. In India it's possible to buy 100 year old ghee so it doesn't go off easily !

                I keep it on the back of the stove in a little 8 oz Le Creuset bowl with lid.
                I use a couple of TBS daily so the 7.8 oz grass fed Pure Indian Foods jar I order from amazon works great.

                  keeping it at room temp is fine, but keeping it on the back of the stove heats it up more often than you'd like. just keep it on the counter.
                  As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

                    My Bosch 6 burner glass top stove stays cool. I can use 2 front burners, never over 4 setting, and back is fine, plus down draft fan is counter level.
