How to Make Ghee

Thought in the East to have many virtues, ghee is thought to take on and magnify the properties of food it is combined with, making the food more nutritious. Ghee imparts a buttery flavor but can hold a much higher temperature than butter without scorching. Try using this beautiful fat to begin Indian-ish dishes. Spices love ghee.

pound unsalted butter
1 clean 8-ounce jar with lid
  • Melt butter over low to medium heat in a saucepan.
  • As it heats, white foam (from the milk solids) will accumulate on the top.  
  • Use a small strainer and begin gently skimming solids off the top without disturbing the bottom.  
  • As you continue this process, the liquid in the bottom of the pan will begin to appear clear and golden.  
  • When all the water is boiled out of the butter, the cooking will sound like hissing and the bubbling will stop.  
  • Remove from heat and let it cool a few moments.  
  • Pour the ghee into the jar.  It will solidify as it cools.  
  • Store in the refrigerator.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Makes about 1 cup of ghee

Done and cooling on the counter. This was easy, quick and it saved me money. Even using organic butter. The ghee at the HFS is sometimes priced out of my budget. I feel I can use ghee all the time now. yay!

Watch the pot though. Once the bubbles stop, the ghee can rise all the way to the top and overflow (starting a kitchen fire). You need to take the pot off the stove once the bubbles stop. Careful! Hot ghee burns.
