How Long does Homemade Ghee last?

Homemade Ghee lasts for as long as one whole year. Ideally, it should be consumed within 6-9 months, but if you cannot do that store ghee in the fridge. Keep it away from any possible bacteria, heat, and light. Get rid of ghee, when it starts to smell bad, tastes sour, or changes color.

How to Store Ghee?

You can store ghee in an ordinary sealed container or a mason jar. It’s better to keep it in a dark and cool cabinet or place, especially in warm weather. So, if you ask me how to store ghee at home, I would say at room temperature because ghee is shelf-stable. It will stay fresh for a good 3-6 months.

Do you have to Refrigerate Ghee?

No, it’s not necessary to store ghee in cold storage. Although, as per your preference, you can keep the jar in the refrigerator during summer time. It would further increase its shelf- life. Always ensure to use a clean spoon while scooping ghee off the container.
