  • dutch oven 6 QT https://amzn.to/3tT6t2j
  • glass jar https://amzn.to/2OKAPoN
  • fine mesh strainer https://amzn.to/3f1tawH


  • 2 lbs unsalted butter


  • Melt the butter and bring it to a boil.
  • Skim the foam as it gets collected on top. Do not walk away as this happens rather quickly.
  • Keep skimming the foam from top until the ghee becomes clear and the milk proteins on the bottom of the pot start to turn brown.
  • Once the milk proteins start turning brown, turn off the heat as the ghee will continue to cook.
  • Cool for a few minutes and then strain into a glass jar and leave uncovered to cool completely and set.
  • Once completely cool and set, you can cover it and keep in the pantry for up to one year.
