Clarified butter (ghee) is butter oil that can be used for cooking (particularly good for high temperature cooking). Ghee is also called seafood butter (it is often served with lobster and other seafood at restaurants). Clarified butter is free of casein and milk protein, which is a plus for those who are unable to tolerate milk protein. Not only is ghee easy to make, its very nourishing, especially if its made with grass fed butter (which I recommend you use).
How To Make Clarified Butter (Ghee)
Clarified Butter (Ghee)
- 1/2 Pound of butter
