This is a recipe that you and your family can enjoy with a lot of your favorite foods. Here is what you need to make your own Clarified Butter:

  • 1 lb unsalted butter
  • 1 pint wide mouth canning jar
  • Metal mesh strainer
  • Cast iron skillet

Using a cast iron skillet, cook the butter on medium heat.

The butter will bubble and simmer and spit sometimes so don’t stand too close. Once it becomes quiet and is foamy on top, remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes before straining through a fine mesh metal strainer into a pint canning jar.  

The ghee will set up in a few hours, no need to refrigerate. Ghee can be used for cooking, on toast and in place of butter.
