  • 1-2 cups unsalted butter


  • Place butter in a small or medium size pot.
  • Melt over medium-low heat.
  • Allow this to come to a simmer for a few minutes, trying your best not to stir the melted butter. You will see it also foam slightly, that’s okay.
  • After a few minutes 2-5 minutes, the milk solids will begin to fall to the bottom and you will see a brown color appear and there will be a sweet smell around you.
  • Turn the heat down and allow the contents to cool for 2 - 3 minutes, remember, no stirring!
  • Afterwards, strain the ghee through a fine mesh sieve into a clean glass jar.
  • Store at room temperature or in the fridge.
  • It will keep for about 3 months at room temperature and up to 6 months in the fridge.
