How to Make Ghee
Cook time
Total time
Serves: Varies
  • Grass-Fed Unsalted Butter 1 lb (450 g)
  1. Place the butter into a medium-large saucepan on the stove over medium-high heat and allow to melt completely, stirring occasionally. This will not take long, so watch it carefully.
  2. Once melted, bring to a boil and then reduce to heat to allow the butter to simmer for about 10 minutes.
  3. You will see the white foam, bubbles or solids rise to the top or fall to the bottom of the pan. These are the milk solids you are trying to remove. Skim off any on the top of the butter and then allow to cook a few minutes (2-3) longer until all the solids have dropped to the bottom.
  4. Do not allow to burn, the result should be a golden yellow liquid.
  5. Once finished, carefully line a metal sieve with a cheesecloth or sheet of paper towel (you will have to change it a few times likely) and pour the ghee through it into a glass jar. The solids will be trapped and the liquid should be all that remains.
  6. You can use ghee as a melted liquid, or allow it to become solid in the refrigerator or even keep at room temperature for up to one month as long as it is well covered in an airtight container.
