Where is Ghee in the Grocery Store?

Question: Where is ghee in the grocery store?

Answer: Ghee is a form of clarified butter so you might expect it to be in the dairy section of your grocery store. However, ghee is actually made from butter that has had its moisture and milk solids removed. This makes ghee a shelf stable product. No refrigeration is required.

Since ghee is shelf stable, it is not required to be stored in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. Ghee can commonly be found in the baking section adjacent to the cooking oils or shortening. Additionally, if your store features an ethnic food section, it can also often be found there. I recently purchased ghee in the Middle Eastern section of my store. However, ghee is a very popular cooking ingredient in India so it may be located in that section of some stores.
