A very, very long time. Anything that might spoil has been cooked out, and I think you would be able to smell any rancidity.

Are you talking about ghee or clarified butter?

Ghee is made to last a long time, as Gale says. Ghee does not need to be refigerated, but I do.

Your nose would definitely detect rancidity - it's unmistakable. I'm sure you're fine!

i keep my ghee in the cupboard and it lasts that way for months. as long as you never used a dirty spoon with bits of other food on it that could be growing mold, i think you're fine.

It last a long, long time. Months, even a year.

And ghee IS clarified butter, though there are other ways of making a clarified butter...
