Well, I made my first attempt at ghee today. It was ready quicker than I expected and looked dark, so I first thought I had burnt it (insert Swedish curses here). Doesn't taste burnt though, so it's probably ok

It should be ok, especially if it doesn't taste burnt.

I believe some members on this forum cook their ghee to a point where the end color achieved is darker.

It seems to be a matter of taste.  When my ghee stops talking to me, I watch it really carefully because I like mine to be golden brown sediment with ghee that looks like liquid gold.  Occasionally the sediment gets dark brown and the ghee gets duller and darker, and I use it anyway.

The darker has a bit more caramel flavor and odor, but it is still usable.  I like it better yellow than brownish, but when you forget about it for too long, you gets it browner....!

, well that was me one of my first times making ghee.  I was    , as a lb of organic butter is none too cheap. Hopped right on here to see if everyone thought it was ok to use. Everyone said give it a try, if it tastes ok, use it. I tried it, it tasted ok, matter of fact better than when it is more yellow and have been making mine like that since. I really love the taste when the color is a bit more on the caramelly   side. Ghee.........yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!   Like has been said on the site..........like putting candy on your veggies. The smell of it cooking is just heavenly.
jayney-O, if the caramelly flavor/look sounds good to you, do give it a try. Think ya might like it.

You might want to try using a lower heat next time so that it cooks slower and therefore you don't have to watch it very carefully to see if it is done versus overcooked.
