I was actually looking at something very similar a few days ago, basically just boil, and skim off the foam / strain?
Basically but not quite.
Thanks for posting this. Ghee is crazy expensive so I am going to try this.
I’ve got 3 sticks of butter sat there currently unused in the fridge, I have a home made cloth straining device I’ve just knocked up (mum is going to kill me for butchering her kitchen wares!!) - going to give this a go today/tomorrow.
I have Bulletproof Coffee on the mind made with ghee - energy hit!!!
I will NEVER buy ghee again! This took all of 15 minutes to make. Was an 8-oz block of fancy unsalted European butter that had been in the fridge for a while. Made a half pint.
I’ll pick up some more fresh unsalted for Thanksgiving cooking and whatever is left over will make some more ghee.
I actually strained mine a couple of times after folding my cheesecloth into additional layers.
Here’s mine! Had to do a few extra runs through the cloth but I think that was a success to be honest.
Keto geek!!! Will report back on flavour and energy hit in due course
Mine WAS a mixture of salted and unsalted (same brand) but I actually wanted the salted flavour for use.
Looks like it will work
I’m fasting and this thread makes me want to make ghee anyway. Pictures are all lovely and ghee is expensive.
i have to be honest, I’ve had it today with BPC coffee, and although the taste is `acquired’ - the energy hit from it is bloody awesome!
I’m on a zero carb day today, hovering around 800 calories in so far, the ghee is a game changer, I am definitely making more.
Takes about an hour for it to hit, then I’m on a bit of an energy high! I did a 15 minute workout earlier, and was going to have some eggs cooked in the ghee after, but the ghee BPC just blunted my hunger so well, I didnt bother.
Made more last night. I think I may have slightly over-cooked it as it has a slight caramel type smell to it now, but was just fine in my coffee
Yeah, same as mine from the other week. Except I overcooked mine even more
I’ve been using my slightly over done ghee all week now and am finding I actually prefer it to the store bought ghee I have in the cupboard. It smells like caramel and has a different consistency to the store bought version, but I think in future I’ll be deliberately recreating it
Mine has a slightly “browned butter” flavor to it, so probably not as done as yours but definitely more flavor than commercial ghee. And I agree - I like it better.
And the texture is a bit grainier but once it melts it doesn’t matter.
I found a 2-lb roll of butter on sale and going to use it to make more ghee once I use up the jar I made. That should work out to a QUART of ghee for $8
I finished mine off yesterday in some cooking. definitely prefer my coffee made with butter & coconut oil rather than the ghee, it just gives a more milky/creamy texture and flavour to it, but I do love the versatility of the ghee in that it was nice and soft!
I reckon I could feel a genuine energy hit from hit, about an hour after having 1-2 tablespoons, I was really buzzing!
Definitely making more once I have a few sticks of butter in.
Tried a Version 2 - completely screwed it up and it’s ended up almost black!
Made the stupid mistake of also trying to strain it into a plastic protein shaker, which melted instantly!
Absolutely fucked the whole thing.
So it now has the consistency of ghee, but is near black, and smells like butterscotch - is this still safe to consume???
Mine smelt like butterscotch and it was lovely. I’d be a bit worried about the melted plastic though…
