We live in North Carolina and I am a foodie. I love researching and changing recipes to fit my own needs and desires. My posts will be the Stephanie way of cooking so you will probably recognize some things and others might leave you saying that isn't for me but thanks anyway. This will allow me to share something I truly love, food and preparing it in such a way that my family and friends can feel how much I care for them.

Do you know what Ghee is? Ghee is the Indian name for clarified butter. Ghee has a higher smoke point than butter, meaning it can be cooked at a higher temperature before it burns. Ghee is made from butter. This is the first recipe I have made with only one ingredient. I wanted Ghee to make an Indian inspired dinner tonight, so needless to say this was the first food to prepare.
Look at the golden goodness.
Ingredients for this recipe are: 1 lb. unsalted butter.
You are welcome to use organic or butter made from milk produced by grass fed cows.
Slice butter into pats and place in a sauce pan over low heat.
Remove white foam, which is the milk solids from the top.
Continue to simmer until all the white stuff is gone and you see a beautiful yellow liquid only.
You should allow the Ghee to cool before straining but I was in a hurry to make dinner.
Pour Ghee through a coffee filter lined strainer over a bowl. Allow to drain.
Pour Ghee into a lidded container, such as a mason jar. This is now ready to use in any
number of Indian inspired recipes.
