How to make ghee

Have you ever heard of ghee? It is AMAZING stuff. I call it the crack cocaine of toppings. It has the benefits of butter without the casein and proteins that some people react to in butter. However, some people who are extremely sensitive to dairy may still react to ghee.

Now do I have you curious about what this stuff is all about?

It’s simple really, Ghee is a clarified, unsalted butter with the milk proteins removed. It has a high smoke point (482*F), making it perfect for cooking, and the flavor makes the homemade version so worth it. You can cook and fry with ghee and it will not break down into free radicals like many other oils. It’s a staple of Indian cuisine. Ghee has a nutty buttery taste and I LOVE it on sweet potatoes or when I fry up some eggs.

When made from high quality butter, it is a great source of fat soluble vitamins like Vitamin K2, CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) A, D & E. It has medium chain fatty acids that are absorbed directly by the liver and burned as energy. It provides a good energy source that can help burn fat so you lose weight.

Ghee is converted directly into energy for your body to use.

It’s doesn’t spoil and does not need to be refrigerated. But, for some reason I keep mine in there. I think it’s habit. But, you could pack it along on trips without worrying about it.

Ghee is expensive to buy but simple to make. (see video)

There is some research that ghee will help heal your gut because it is full of probiotics and prebiotics as well as fiber, which helps the immune system
