I tried with raw cream, but it only made about 2 Tbsp. and it didn't taste the same.
It might be better to make butter from the cream first, then make ghee from the butter... It's been too long since I've made butter, so don't remember the ratios, but there is usually quite a bit of the liquid leaves as runny buttermilk. This doesn't leave as much butterfat for ghee!
Well, I tried. I poured off the cream (mistake--I should have spooned it out) and beat it for a while, hoping to make whipped cream then butter. I've done that before, but this time I beat it and beat it but it only made little tiny bits of butter. I strained it out and made the ghee from the butter that did form.
No, I don't have any noticeable reaction to dairy anymore. I used to have dizziness, nausea and terrible cramping and diarrhea. Since the Warrior diet I have had no trouble with any dairy except some once with whipped cream. I don't have any trouble with cheese (even avoid cheeses), ghee or butter. I don't know why I tested allergic to it--must be the chemicals or hormones or something, I don't know.

Some cream just doesn't make butter well... I remember several times when I was making butter, with an old churn, that I would crank and crank and it would just make these little globules and they never congealed... This only happened a couple of times, but it can happen - part of the variability of natural products...
Hopefully it's not a permanent thing!!!!! I will pray for a speedy recovery to your aversion to ghee.
Have you tried walnut oil for cooking? I use it sometimes. Actually I did a type of stir fry last night with it. Cucumbers, some already cooked broccoli, mushrooms, pine nuts, cumin and an egg. Oh, and a little lamburger. Mozerella cheese on top. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm it was good.
