I like the taste of ghee.  It's very mild.

Henriette,
Boy are you in luck! Ghee keeps for years without refrigeration and you should definitely NOT freeze it!. Store it in a dry dark cool place. In fact, somewhere in another thread I wrote about starting up a ghee cellar to store vintage ghees. It'll become more potent medicinally with age. eh


It does á
Hm
Personally I find that my ghee after a few months starts to taste different - found a glass - not used from december and it was a tiny bit rancid... then again I┤m a supertaster

About the fatmolecules I really don┤t think it would be ruined.
When my coop has organic jersey butter ( Thiese) on sale I buy more and freeze and it works completely fine.

I also stock up on organic butter when it is on sale and freeze it. I see no difference between frozen butter and chilled butter at all. I have used both to make ghee and to be honest, I get better results from the butter that was frozen.....


Another note.... when talking with a man stocking commercial ghee in the store.... he was putting it in the refrigerator section and when I told him ghee shouldn't be refrigerated, he said it always comes chilled from the distributor. So I think regardless of where commercial ghee is at the store... it has been refrigerated at some point in its journey.

I do the same, stock up when the price is low, then freeze...but, I freeze the butter, not the ghee.

Another reason to make your own ghee...that way you know where it's been!


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

I've never tried frozen ghee either.... but I am wondering why this wouldn't work. Is it for the texture only... or does heating the butter and removing the milk solids and water alter the chemical structure of the ghee to a degree that freezing is not a viable possibility?

Hm, I don't know why I was unsure about frozen ghee. I imagined it as gritty.

Come to think of it, I don't know why it shouldn't work to freeze ghee.
I know butter freezes just fine, and that's a mixture of 20% water (whey) and 80% fat. Ghee is 100% fat. á

I think I'll try freezing a part of my next batch and see what happens.

Yea Poly!!!  You can be the experimenter and let us know what happens.... Inquiring minds (well,... my mind)   want to know....
