What is Ghee? Clarified Butter

Ghee: Clarified ButterGhee is the Sanskrit name for clarified butter which has been in use for many years in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisines.

Ghee is made of real butter, usually buffalo or cow’s milk, but it can be made from any other milk producing animal. The milk is churned into butter then cooked at medium to high temperatures.

The butter melts and begins to boil, releasing most of the moisture in the butter. Solid matter sinks to the bottom and the top becomes frothy with the evaporating water. A thick layer of fat forms in the middle – that is the ghee.
