Make Your Own Easy to Make Healthy Ghee

Make Your Own Easy to Make Healthy Ghee

Posted 2017-11-27 by finyfollow

This idea was given to me by a friend who has been making ghee for a long time, and who told me that it has health benefits.

Ghee is butter that has been processed to remove the milk solids. It’s basically butter oil.

Ghee also has a high smoking point unlike butter and does not burn like butter does.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: Varies - about 30 minutes
Serves: 350 g approximately of butter

Ingredients
500 g unsalted butter

Method
  • Put the butter in a saucepan with a heavy base and bring it to the boil.

  • After the butter melts, it will start to bubble and then separate (something that also happens when you use butter and forget about it!)


  • This part that separates is just the whey from the butter floating to the surface (or the milk component).


  • Skim this whey off - you can use it in mashed potatoes, or I threw it out.


  • Continue to cook the butter until it turns quite clear and the milk solids sink to the bottom.

  • This is then clarified butter.

  • You can continue to cook it until it goes a golden brown as long as you do not let it burn, and this continued cooking will make it taste almost nutty.

  • Let the ghee cool a bit and strain through two strainers - one smaller one inside a larger one.


  • Carefully pour it, when cool, into a jar with a lid and keep it either in the fridge or the pantry and use it as you would oil - it does not seem to go "into" the food or disappear as much as oil and I now use it for almost everything when cooking.
