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.
