Ghee Making Process: What is ghee made from

by Milkio Foods Grass-Fed ghee from New Zealand

Ghee or clarified butter is milk fat that is converted from butter when water and milk solids are separated from milk fat. But, what is ghee made from? Ghee originated from India and Asia has a higher smoke point which makes it favorable when sautéing and cooking. When making ghee clarified butter, unsalted butter is recommended to obtain a pure and no salty flavor butter.


Ghee making process

1. Cut the unsalted butter into small pieces to facilitate heat penetration, place the butter pieces into a saucepan to melt at low heat slowly without stirring it, and don’t let it brown.

2. Separate milk solids from butterfat, as the butter melts you can see it separate into three layers. The top layer is thin and foamy; this represents some of the milk solids. The middle layer is the bright golden butterfat and the bottom layer is made up of water and milk solids.

3.  Line a fine mesh strainer with several layers of cheesecloth and set it over a heat-proof container, pour the warm butterfat through the cheesecloth to filter out any remaining milk solids.

4. You can store your clarified butter in an airtight container, in a fridge, or freeze it for several months. This was all about what ghee is made from. You can choose a reliable ghee brand like Milkio Foods, in New Zealand.
