How to make ghee at home!


  • 1 pound of butter


  1. Melt butter on med-low.
  2. Once melted, bring up to medium heat and let butter start to simmer (uncovered).
  3. Carefully scrape off any foam/solids that come to the top with a small slotted spoon or small, hand-held sieve/strainer.
  4. Once the top is clear it turns a dark, golden brown and starts to smell slightly nutty, remove immediately. (as for time frame – it all depends on your temp, but it should take about 7-10 minutes).
  5. Pour through cheesecloth and a fine, mesh sieve into a glass container.
  6. Store in airtight container on counter for up to a month or in the fridge for several months.
