Update from me, the original poster.

I've been keeping my ghee out on the counter now (the rest is frozen). No mold, as there was in a first jar I kept out----- I don't know why that jar developed some mold/suspicious spots on it.

It's been fine.

There was probably some contamination in the first jar, maybe something off a spoon you dipped into the jar.

If the ghee is properly smoked or heated it will remain good for years without refrigeration , we keep ghee like this way in our hot and humid climate.

Older ghee is better in taste and it also used in Ayurvedic remedies.

That's what I thought. I was hoping you would chime in.

For the first time I came across the phrase, now I know what does it mean, thank you.

butter, recipe, temperature

Ghee (clarified butter) at room temperature I make ghee because I cook Indian food often/occasionally and also use it for other cooking. What I know is I'm told to keep it in the 'fridge' for safety. Now, the dilemma -----if it's cold I can barely scoop out spoonfuls of it to use it's so hard. I can, of course, melt it a little in the microwave----- but-----can I say I'm lazy? and wondering if heating in the MW over and over is o.k. (I put the ghee in pint jars for the 'fridge.) So. I would like 'personal experiences' about keeping it on the countertop. I won't hold you responsible for my ruined ghee---:wink:-- just want to know. If the consensus is NO------ I guess I'll have to get those little sauce plastic cups and put a couple of tablespoons in each them and freeze or refrigerate them. Did I say I'm lazy? 3 stars 1 reviews
