If you're like me, and have never heard of it before, ghee is clarified butter. Its from South Asia (think India!!) and the process of melted butter removes the whey and all dairy so it's ok for Lucas and I to consume right now that we're dairy free.
I had seen it in stores, but it's expensive! So, when I found out I could make it easily at home, I couldn't wait to try it out! I followed the GAPS book method of preparation and it couldn't have been easier!
I make our butter from our grass-fed, raw milk so once I got enough butter made, I made my ghee! Did I mention it's SO easy??
butter goes in the oven (heated to 250) for 45-60 minutes
after 45 minutes, mine was ready. I strained it using a cheese cloth and took off all the drippings that way
Now it's ready to use! It's perfect at high temperatures as the milk has been taken out (which is what burns in butter)
It also has a wonderful buttery smell and taste and smelled up the entire house as it was heating. Yum!
I've already spread it on almond bread...delicious!
