Making your own Ghee

To really hit the ghee spot, make your own. The quality and medicinal properties will be superior when made by the hand of the most wholistic practitioner, YOU.

Use unsalted good quality butter to make your ghee. Place the butter in a heavy bottom saucepan. Let it melt and simmer on the lowest possible heat setting.

Initially the butter will bubble and spit, making much noise. It will look cloudy and thick and foam will appear on the surface. Depending on the quantity of butter used allow the liquid to simmer for 15-30 minutes (500g butter will take approx 25-30 minutes).

The milk fat solid particles will slowly sink to the bottom of the saucepan. The foam will lessen on the surface and the liquid will become a clearer golden colour. The sputtering and noise will slow and stop and at this moment the sediment on the bottom will start to turn golden or light brown. This means the ghee is ready.

Remove the pan from the heat, allowing to cool down. Then, strain the liquid through a very fine sieve or muslin, into a clean jar or container. This golden clear liquid is the clarified butter or ghee. Do not cover or put on a lid until completely cool.

Use ghee for cooking, add to your cooked food or spread on toast. You do not need to keep ghee refrigerated as it does not go rancid. It will keep for months if you do not contaminate it by coming into contact with food particles or water.
