Yes.  I have wanted to make some, but I don't think I have the cooking skills to pull it off.  I was so happy to find some in the grocery store!!!  I can hardly wait to use it on a sweet potato!

No cooking skills needed; especially if you use the oven method. CLICK. Homemade ghee tastes *way* better than store-bought.

What I've always been told about refrigerating food is "once refrigerated, always refrigerate." So that means if you bought ghee in the store refrigerator, you should refrigerate it at home.  But if you bought it on the shelf at room temperature then you don't have to refrigerate it.

I just bought a jar of ghee.  Does it need to be refrigerated?


Adding to Karen74's comment - you dont have to refrigerate ghee, BUT be sure to always, always use a clean and dry utensil for dipping. If you dip the ghee and stir w/ the same spoon, use a new, clean and dry spoon to dip more, if needed. and enjoy!!!

if your ghee was refrigerated in the store when you bought it, the condensation when opening it may contaminate your ghee.......so you would need to refrigerate it after using.
but if bought standing on a shelf, then do what Italy just mentioned.

The directions that I use in making GHEE says to refrigerate for about 45 minutes after making it, which I do.  I also keep my unopened jars in the frige until I'm ready to open a new jar (since I make 6 pounds at a time).  I have never had condensation form in ANY of my jars.  I think this is due to the fact that the water is evaporated out when it is properly cooked.  I have been making my own Ghee for years.  The only time I've had any spoilage was from excessive heat when I accidentally left it on the counter in my camper when we went home.  I usually put it in the frige anytime we're not there with the AC on.  At home, I keep out only one opened jar at a time as my house is air conditioned.  

Some of my favorite uses for Ghee is greasing pans, frying eggs or fish, or as a replacement for shortning such as baking cookies, bread, etc.

Ghee is a staple around my house.  I drank it in India as part of Ayurvedic treatment and did not know what it was.  I was able to find it at an International store in an university town near me which caters to that population.
Upon reading DrD's first book...it was one of the first things that convinced me that he was going to be my main source of info.
I no longer buy it, cause it is so easy to make.

The only time I refrigerate ghee is usually in the middle of summer when the kitchen tends to stay hot throughout the day.

I used to refrigerate it until I found out that you don't have to. It's a lot easier to use/measure when it's not hard.
