. . Just finished the simmering and it's that gorgeous classic golden color with golden brown solids on the bottom. Smells so delicious! I can't wait till it's cooled and strained and ready to use. I'm baking a sweet potato to go with my leftover pot roast tonight, and it'll have yummy fresh ghee on it!

I LOVE the way we eat!


I know!!!!  
I was recently instructing my sister in law how to prepare her kitchen for my visit next month.  I told her the types of food that I eat and some of the ones I don't eat.  She sadly said "You're like my mother before she died.  You eat to live, not live to eat."  Well . . . yes.  But, she interpreted it as all the foods that I'm not able to eat (as in a disability), and I said, "but I love, love, love the foods I eat!"  I really don't think she believes me!  How can anyone not eat deep fried, breaded fish, pork chops, ham, mashed potatoes, fresh bread, coffee .. .. ..

Well ...  I just LOVE the way we eat!!

I had to save out the last dipperful of ghee, it was already so thick I couldn't get it through the strainer! I'll use it for dinner tonight and just take out everything but the little layer of solids on the bottom of the cup. Ooohh, so excited!

Victoria, I know what you mean. My good friend and canning buddy cannot understand why I'm eating what I eat, even though her own mom is celiac and she herself definitely has gluten intolerance at least. For a while, whenever we'd do lunch she'd always offer me something made with wheat and then try to tempt me into eating it until I finally said 'Look, if I eat that it will KILL ME eventually, so please stop waving it under my nose' and she quit . . . but she still thinks I'd be better off eating 'high fiber like whole wheat'. And she worries that I'm not drinking enough milk. *sigh* The propaganda machine has done its job well.

Anyway--I now have a whole quart of lovely golden yellow GHEE thickening up on my kitchen counter! Life is good, very good. And no high fiber whole wheat in sight.

Eat your egg yolks. Yummy and sooo good for you! Have a little ghee with them too. It'll freak out your doctor when you tell him. When I told mine his eyes widened and he spluttered 'But you can't DO that!' And yet somehow my overall cholesterol is down, and LDL down significantly . . . hehheh.

Organic butter would be best for health reasons. "Grocery store" butter will work.

I've tweaked my ghee making recipe like this:  4 1-lb bricks of butter from Krogers (  unwrapping 4 lbs of sticks is a project in itself ) placed in a 10 qt crockpot on high for 6 or 8 hours ( depending on when I'm ready ) with the lid OFF.  This makes the top floating foam harden and way much easier to remove.  I let it cool for about half hour and pour the rest through a brown coffee strainer fortified by a metal canning funnel in a canning jar.  If you lid it while its warm, the lid adheres to the jar nicely.  Makes 2  qt jars never have a problem of it going bad because I use it for everything.

Oh I also found this website that I want to make "O" compliant - Brilliant Idea:  http://kojo-designs.com/2012/0.....pot-freezer-cooking/

Well, I've just made my first successful (well I'm pretty sure it is) batch of ghee.  (Tried once before with cheap salted butter without much success).  I used the stovetop method on medium heat and strained it through a tea strainer.

I used an unsalted NZ butter called Westgold that is meant to be grassfed.  Can't wait to try it.

Sounds good!


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

It's nice!  Think I might try and make some more today.  Used it in Butter Chicken the other night and it made quite a difference to the flavour - it was sweeter and deeper.
