Marvelous stuff. Thanks for the link  :)

Expect to see raised eyebrows when you tell people it's a healthy fat. We're a long way from public acceptance of it. Supermarkets still move a lot of margarine these days.

Great gift idea!

Santina, it's really easy to make, and so much cheaper. If you can get organic butter, you'll probably find home made is better in every regard.

I make mine from organic, unsalted butter (of course!). I LOVE it!

I have found that using at least two sticks of butter works much easier than bothering with just one. Some on the forum who have been making ghee a lot longer than I have will use a whole pound. I strain mine through a very fine strainer instead of using other filters that are messier. I heat mine until there is a light tan color on the bottom of the saucepan. I find that it is better not to do any stirring, either. And I NEVER use salted butter. Too foamy. Some people use their oven to do this job.

I use all four quarter sticks for each batch.  I also stir, because otherwise the milk solids stick to the bottom and burn, which leaves a mess in the pan.  I use two mesh strainers, but I don't think they're fine enough.  The result still seems cloudy.  But when I used a coffee filter, the ghee itself would not drain through too well.

Here is a link to Dr. D's blog where he talks about the details...
http://www.dadamo.com/B2blogs/blogs/index.php/2009/01/15/butyrate-and-ghee?blog=27

I use 2 pounds of butter for each batch to make about 2 pints of ghee.  I stir the ghee several times to 1) stir in the foam on top, and 2) to keep the solids from sticking so much on the bottom of the pan.

I filter the ghee through a napkin, as a coffee filter tends to restrict the ghee and often results in some of the ghee(up to 1/4 cup) remaining in the filter.

Hope this helps.

My ghee is perfectly clear and NEVER cloudy - I do not stir AT ALL. It doesn't burn because I don't cook it at high heat. My strainer is perfectly capable of filtering out the tiniest particles. As proof, my ghee is exactly the same color on the bottom as it is on the top. Maybe all that stirring is a problem??? I used to do all that stuff you people are talking about and found out there is a better way. I do not want to "stir in the foam on top." I let the ghee settle a little while after it is finished cooking, then the little foam that is left is easily pushed away. I wind up with only a tiny fraction less than 1/2 cup for each stick of butter. The strainer I use is made by Oneida.

Santina, Dr. D.'s instructions are pretty straight forward, but his "testing" gives me the heebie-jeebies!  :o When the stuff that settles to the bottom turns a tannish color, and I like the way it smells, it is ready! Some people like the taste better if it turns a little darker tan, but I prefer the lighter shade, but not too light! I have kept ghee in a cabinet for as long as six months, and it tastes and smells exactly the same. I take it on trips with no refrigeration whatsoever. Wonderful ghee!

(dove)(dove)(dove)(dove)(dove)(dove)(dove)(dove)(dove)(dove)

sometimes - like now - i wonder: what if i never met you?
really people, i must say that swami is great, but more and much more than this , there is the fact that i can "talk" to you every day, every moment, and this is the most beautiful gift that Dr D gave me. This, too, is part of the "health program".

so, thank you for your replies.
i hope you will enjoy with me the meditation with Oprah, i've just posted the link in a new thread. ;D
