  • 4 pack organic unsalted butter grass-fed if you can


  • In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, heat the 4 sticks of butter until they melt down and start to simmer. You will hear the butter popping that is normal.
  • Continue to simmer the butter for 20 minutes. Only stir occasionally during this time. Don't let your spoon touch the bottom of the pan when you stir. You want the milk solids that fall to stay on the bottom.
  • After just a few minutes you will notice white forming on the top (that is the milk solids) Continue to simmer until white milk solids start to fall to the bottom and the milk solids on the bottom gently start to brown.
  • At this point, your simmer should be clear (yellow) with no white or very little white. Make sure to not burn the milk solids on the bottom. Turn the heat off and strain the ghee into a heat-proof mason jar with a mesh strainer.
  • Store on the counter for 4-5 months or in your fridge for up to a year.
