How to store Kimmu’s Kitchen ghee to get the most out of it

There are three ways ghee can be stored: in a cabinet, in the refrigerator, or in the freezer. Let’s explore each of these locations a bit closer.

Kitchen cabinet

An unopened, sealed jar of ghee can keep at room temperature for up to nine months in a kitchen cabinet. Once the jar is opened, room-temp ghee will stay fresh for up to six months. The key to keeping ghee for this long on a shelf is to store it in a dark place, away from sunlight, and to ensure that the location is not too hot or humid. It’s really quite important to keep moisture out of the ghee jar, as water will turn the ghee rancid very quickly.

In terms of user-friendliness, this is the most preferred method of how to store ghee since room-temp ghee is soft, spreadable, and scoopable.


An opened jar of ghee will stay good in a fridge for up to a year! Again, assuming you are able to keep the moisture out. The only downside here is that refrigerated ghee solidifies making it a bit harder to use. If you do want to store your ghee in the fridge, but want to avoid having to chip away at a hard block of ghee every time you want to use it, you’ll just have to remember to let it soften for a couple of hours on a countertop beforehand.


It is entirely possible to freeze ghee for at least a year, and perhaps longer. We recommend divvying up a large quantity into smaller portions (perhaps a month’s worth) and double wrapping it to prevent freezer burn. And don’t forget to label and date each container!
