How do you store your homemade ghee?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I stored mine in a clear glass jar and put it on my kitchen counter top. Do I need to store them in the cabinet instead or in the fridge?

My Weck jars are AWESOME. All glass (lid and jar), none of the chemicals (the sealer never touches the food when stored properly), replaceable accessories (in case your room mates/kids don't know how to work them and stretch the sealers), and super super cheap crateandbarrel.com/search.aspx?query=weck

Agree about the fridge moisture! I half-forgot about my ghee for a couple of weeks and it got very moldy from the condensation. Now I keep it on the counter so I can't forget about it. I go through it so fast that way that I don't have to worry about keeping it dark/dry/cool.

i store mine in a glass jar with a lid in the cabinet. i think countertop would be fine too, as the light will not have any type of effect on oxidation or anything like that since it's almost pure saturated fat, making it very shelf stable. the main thing is that you want to keep additional moisture out, so don't stick a wet spoon in there or drip anything into the jar.

also, don't rinse/wash a glass jar and then 'sorta' dry it and call it good. make sure the jar is completely dry before putting the ghee in there. other than that, ghee keeps very well and remains quite spoonable at room temp. another note regarding moisture is that if you are pulling a jar out of the fridge back and forth, it may develop moisture from condensation inside the jar. but all this mish mash about moisture is really unlikely to be useful (in my house anyway), since i go through about a pound of butter ghee every 2 weeks or so. i can't even imagine having ghee last long enough to worry about rancid-ness.

Pyrex container that I put in the fridge. I go through it so fast that I suppose I don't need to refrigerate it, but I see no downside in doing so.
