It is very important to eat plenty of natural good quality fats in every meal from free-range or organic meats, butter, ghee, coconut and cold pressed oils. The fat content of the meal will regulate the blood sugar level and helps to control carbohydrate cravings. Following this method of making Ghee is so easy. Ghee can also be rendered on the stove but this method requires more time and monitoring.
1Preheat your oven to approximately 60 – 120 C.
2Add the blocks of butter to a glass or stainless steel oven dish and leave it in the oven for 1-2 hours.
3The liquid in the dish will separate with the milk solids on the bottom (liquid creamy white colour), ghee in the middle (yellow) with some floaty bits of whey on top (crusty yellow and golden brown floaty bits).
4Carefully scrape everything floating on the surface of the ghee with a tea strainer.
5The ghee-the yellow liquid can be carefully poured into a jar with a cheese cloth on top to catch any whey or unwanted milk solids that are left over.
6Try not to disrupt the milk solids and ensure that they remain in the bottom of the pan as you pour out the ghee.
7Discard the milk solids and refrigerate the ghee in glass jars.
8You can bake, roast, fry and saute with ghee
