I know, crazy, but it’s true.

Rich, creamy, nutty, and sweet. The nourishing goodness of butter without the need for refrigeration.

Sound too good to be true?

Let me introduce you to the goodness and wonder of ghee.

What is ghee?

Ghee is butter that has undergone a slow careful heating process to remove all the milk fat solids, moisture, and any impurities. The end result is a butter with a rich, buttery, sweet, nutty taste that has been clarified and is now self-stable requiring no refrigeration. Ghee is easy to digest due to this clarification process. Ghee has a very high smoke point which makes it wonderful for high temp. cooking. Butter burns quickly when heated leaving a brown butter with a burnt taste (yuck).  Ghee retains its golden color and nutty, rich taste even when heated to very high temperatures.

Ghee is known as a sacred food in many parts of the world, including India where it is regarded as essential to a healthy diet, chocked full of nutrients and healing properties. Loaded with omega 3 and 9 fatty-acids and if made from pastured butter contains a large amount of CLA. Consuming ghee can help keep healthy skin, nails, and promote energy as it’s loaded with vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, E, K, and D.

Due to the clarification of ghee and the removal of milk fat solids, people who don’t tolerate dairy, often consume ghee and even find it a healing food.

Yes, ghee has amazing health benefits, but the flavor of ghee is out of this world! Incredibly sweet, nutty, perfectly amazing! Once you have tasted the creamy, rich flavor ghee offers you will wonder how you’ve missed out on such goodness for so long.

It’s mind-blowing goodness.

  • Ghee, although a type of clarified butter, differs slightly in its production. The process of creating traditional clarified butter is complete once the water is evaporated and the fat (clarified butter) is separated from the milk solids. However, the production of ghee includes simmering (see Sautéing) the butter along with the milk solids so that they caramelize, which makes it nutty-tasting and aromatic.Your milk fat solids will brown. If they did not brown, you made clarified butter. If they browned, you made a type of clarified butter known as ghee.

    • Thank you. They were brown on the bottom and difficult to pick up in lighting. Yes, you are correct. Thanks for sharing.

  • i have a dairy intolerance and ghee has been a lifesaver. i have made ghee a few times now and have had trouble getting it to completely set. i popped my latest batch in the fridge (i live in a slightly warmed climate) and when taken out it splits a little, developing pools of liquids in places. have you had any experience with ghee that doesn’t set?

    • I haven’t had the issue of it not setting yet. Would it be possible that the butter needs to “cook” a bit longer and hasn’t fully reached the state of removing all the milk fat? Let me do asking to a few other foodie blog friends. I’ll ask if they have experienced that issue.

  • Hi Kristen! Love your site. Quick question, I generally can only find Organic Valley Pastured lightly salted butter in my area, would that work for making ghee? I know you said unsalted in your tutorial. Thank you!

  • Hi Kristin, this is going to be my first time to make ghee. I just wanted to know on the time. When you said the process in cooking ghee will take a total of 30 mins is that in low heat setting?
