- Aids weight loss (Stimulates digestive fire)
- Promotes longevity. (Assists absorption of vital nutrients)
- Enhances glow and beauty to skin and hair. (Add to meals for 2 wks to a month to see results)
- Improves taste and flavor of food...dramatically. (Drizzle up to a tsp over finished dishes for best flavor and minimal calories)
- Place one pound of butter (unsalted) in a good sized pan, with a good heavy base. Heat gently until butter melts, then turn heat up to medium.
- Once it starts boiling turn down to a low heat again. Let it simmer away gently. It will foam and splutter. This is just the butter giving off the liquids, as it turns itself into the magical ghee!
- Do not cover the pot or you will interfere with this process.
- Stir from time to time. After 10-15 minutes it should start to smell 'popcorny' and turn a rich golden shade.
- Skim off any foam from the top (this is the portion of butter that causes most stomach problems). When mixture has cooled slightly, pour it into a jar through a piece of cheesecloth and secure with an airtight top. There will be some solids at the bottom of the pan which you can discard.
Ghee has a very long shelf life. Traditionally it is not kept in the fridge, but do so if you prefer. It will easily keep for a few months.
However, once the jar is opened make sure you always use a clean dry spoon to extract the contents or you will easily contaminate it.
