Good question. I heard/read that ghee doesn't need to be refrigerated but I always feel funny about that. It just seems like it would get rancid or something being stored in a cupboard. I recently tossed a jar & bought another one because it felt too weird!

i've been using ghee for quite some time... and NO, you do NOT need to refrigerate it; it'll be quite fine in your cupboard at room temperature.

ghee adds a nice, deep, nutty flavor to your foods... and is excellent for cooking at high temps on the stovetop.

the indian/pakastani/mediterranean type stores will have ghee products, but the best-tasting i've found so far comes from purity farms.

check them out... http://www.purityfarms.com

their ghee is certified organic too.

LOL that was not the question though. I know ghee does not need to be kept in the fridge and that it can be kept in the cupboard (I have some in mine as we speak). I was wondering how long it could be kept in the fridge if that is where you chose to keep it.

my purityfarms ghee, that i purchased in may 2006, has an expiration date of July 2008... and purity farms makes no recommendation over storing in the fridge or at room temp.

so... if it can remain in the cupboard until 2008, i would think that it will last at least that long (or longer) in the fridge.

one of my indian friends says that ghee does NOT go rancid... it can be kept for years on end with no worries. not that i don't trust him... i'd replace it after a while anyway.

Ghee

Yes, Ghee would be a good substitute for lard.

A comment about Ghee
It is clarified butter. Although, unlike butter, it does not burn at high temperatures.
Available to buy, at Asian store, in the Western world.
