Oh em GHEE!

Did you know that it is SO easy to make your own ghee?


Ghee is clarified butter that originated in ancient India and is commonly used as cooking fat in traditional Indian cuisine. Ghee is widely known to be a healthy cooking fat. Aside from being rich in vitamins A, E, and K2, Ghee has a high smoke point and is thought to decrease inflammation. Ghee is also a great source of CLA, or conjugated linoleic acid, which is known to help boost metabolism.


To make ghee, simply heat one pound of butter over low heat in a heavy bottom pan for about 10-15 minutes, or until the milk solids at the bottom of the pan begin to brown. Once milk solids have browned, strain melted butter thought a thin mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth and place in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Ghee can be left at room temperature, and used for up to 3 months. Put your ghee on a warm piece of sourdough bread, cook with it as an alternative cooking fat, or put some in your coffee!
