GHEE - What is it, it's uses & benefits

Ghee is basically clarified butter, which is made by separating the milk solids from the butter itself. The beautiful golden liquid left behind is then known as "ghee."

My purpose for sharing this post is to acquaint you with the basic recipe for ghee, it's uses, and how it benefits us.

How to make GHEE

You will need

  1. 5-6 sticks of grass-fed butter (unsalted)

  2. A large pot

  3. Strainer

  4. Mason jar

Simply place the sticks of butter in a large pot and turn on the heat to medium low. Let the butter melt for about 15-20 minutes.

The key is to make sure you don't burn the butter, so heat temperature is VERY essential for this recipe.

You will notice that the butter will start to bubble into a white soapy consistency, then slowly start to clear up. Now is the time to lower the heat just a bit more and let the butter simmer. This is a slow and careful method of creating ghee. Yes! you are creating it!

Once you start seeing a beautiful golden color liquid and can see the bottom of the pan with milk solids (white grainy crumbles) separated, you can turn the heat off and let it cool to room temperature. This will take about 30 minutes or so.

Now you can take a strainer, the size of a mason jar opening, and strain the liquid into the jar. The beautiful golden liquid is your finished product. You just made GHEE!
