There are different reasons why one should want to make ghee. For me I use it both at home and on the trail. It holds alot better than butter does and I just like the taste.

Tools needed:

1/2 cup butter (depending on how much you want)

Place the butter in a casserole and heat up


Once the butter is completely melted you will start to see the milk protein bubbling up to the surface.


Just scoop the milk protein out with a strainer


Continue to do this until all the milk protien is out.. this takes about 5-10 minutes total

Once the ghee is done place it in a jar at give it some time to settle. Usually takes about a day to completely settle.
