Pure Organic Ayurveda Ghee Recipe
Making Ghee is easy, and takes just 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the quality you’re making. Ghee can be used in place of butter and is an ideal cooking oil all sorts of dishes, or even in baking. Ghee makes a wonderful body oil for massage and can serve as a base for herbal ointments (for burns, skin rashes, etc.)
1 pound Organic Unsalted Butter
Place the butter in a heavy, one-quart saucepan, and cook uncovered over medium heat until the butter melts.
Turn heat down to medium-low to maintain a low simmer.
Keep a close watch, as the ghee can easily burn.
The butter will foam and sputter while it cooks, and whitish milk solids will begin to form on the bottom of the pot.
At this point you need to watch the ghee very carefully so it doesn’t burn. When the crackling sound has almost entirely stopped; the butter is a completely clear, beautiful golden color through to the bottom, and there are only a few air bubbles on the surface, it is done.
Once the milk solids turn a light golden brown, take the ghee off the heat. Allow to cool for about 30 minutes, and then pour through a fine sieve or layers of cheesecloth into a clean, dry glass container with a tight lid.
