I’ve read that Ghee can still go rancid, because it’s an oil. Only has a couple of years for shelf life. Here’s two contradictory links. I don’t know which direction to go regarding storing ghee. -k

Ghee (“clarified butter”) for Long-Term Storage

Ok, this is where it gets sticky. I’d love to tell you the shelf-life of ghee, but there is a lot of conflicting information out there! There are “prepper” type sites that sell canned ghee and say it has a shelf-life of 20-30 years. I read in other places that it has a 10-15 year shelf-life and still in other places that it is good “indefinitely” and “nonperishable”. (I’ve seen recipes for canning regular butter that is supposed to be good for 2-3 years, but the government warns against this as not being safe; but, if there are people out there canning regular butter for 2-3 years then, certainly, properly prepared and stored ghee should be good for AT LEAST that long.) I’m no expert and you need to use your own discretion on this; but after all the reading I’ve done on it, (and I did a lot) I’m confident it should be good (properly) canned and stored for at least a few years, possibly decades. Someone on a message board claimed that 1,000-year-old ghee was found in a grave and was still good. Well, I don’t know about that. lol
