How to Make Ghee


  • Author: Caitlin
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 12 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 oz organic and grass-fed butter (more or less)
  • 1 small sauce pan
  • fine mesh strainer
  • 1-cup jar

Instructions

  1. Cut butter into cubes and place in small pan.
  2. Warm over medium heat until melted, then reduce to low-medium heat.
  3. Simmer for 15-25 minutes, until milk solids have dropped to the bottom and started to brown.
  4. Using a fine mesh strainer of some kind (sometimes I use a nut milk bag or a tea strainer, but you can use 4-layer cheese cloth also), strain the butterfat into a glass jar or container, removing the milk solids.
  5. Discard the solids.
  6. Store the ghee in a covered jar or container at room temperature for 3 months, and then refrigerate for up to 1 year. (Though it is highly unlikely to last that long!)
  7. Enjoy this delicious fat with a high smoke for cooking meat and vegetables, or on toast, sweet potatoes, and in desserts!
