I've done that as well, Tea Rose. I found the taste (of the darker ghee) to be really good in baked goods.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Well that's it. What an idiot!  I should have looked for this before:  I found organic butter at Costco today for $3.40.  Amazing price.  

I'm making my own ghee now!  I got canning jars to put it in and i'm going to freeze it up as suggested!

Thanks for all the hints!

Quoted from Lloyd


That's a brand I pick up whenever there's a coupon discount. The cultured (no salt) is really good, I just use it straight (since I can   ) rather than make ghee with it. I buy ghee for sautee which doesn't use much; it's very cost effective. The latitude of being able to freely use butter when I want makes it easy that way.  


Lloyd!  This is a topic I've been meaning to bring up.  Is the ghee more effective for weight loss since it is a diamond?  I mean I'd love to freely eat butter but stil wondering which is truly better - ghee or butter?

I couldn't ever buy ghee.... without kicking myself in the pants.  I dunno, everyone makes it sound so hard on-line when you search for DIY recipes.  Ya boil butter and pour it through a coffee filter into a jar.  The end.    

But i used to 'fridge all my ghee until I gave the room temp method  whirl.  I found these glass bulb-things with a spout and handle, and a little lid thingy, so I just pour the ghee instead of worrying about wet spoons and what not.  Works great!

Why ???-not what I have been told by professionals - I donīt understand why butter or ghee ( 100 % butter oil should be harmed  by doing that.

- but maybe a Asian tradition ??- fair enough AC  




Ghee is best at room temperature. No condensation issues. And frozen ghee tastes different from ghee at room temperature, it is never used in that form in medicinal preparations. I personally feel that there is no reason to prolong the shelf life of a food product by freezing it, especially food like freshly made ghee. Melt, boil and then freeze it and then thaw it...I dont know. Sorry I dont have any scientific explanation

Lurpak is Danish conventional butter - I have seen it in shops  abroad- and while it is better than a lotof butters - it is simply not as good our organic pastured butter.

Fair enough AC- for me it was just a way of making sure that I got the good quality summer butter ....

the thawing and condensation resulted thereof, would contaminate the already sterile ghee.......that s how I see it.

Ok then.. I'm freezing the butter I get on sale, is that ok?  

Then I'll make the ghee as needed.  So the question is how long is the shelve life of ghee, anyone know?

The butter is a superfood because it has slightly higher levels of butyrate than ghee for the same serving. It also contains small amounts of non-fat milk parts so is not a diamond food. Hope that helps.

Butter can be frozen and then later made into ghee, I have done this in the past. Not sure how it affect the shelf life.

Eric, that picture looks almost like you're walking on water!  Lol

What a great idea.  I think those things are for vinegar and they probably have a fancy name, but it's a fantastic idea to put the ghee in that and you don't have to use a spoon.  Wow!  I have a designated ghee spoon that fits just right in the jar I use (it's an old pickle jar shaped like a barrel with a nice, wide mouth).  But I like the idea of a vinegar jar.
