  • 1 pound butter
  • 4 cloves garlic smashed
  1. In a medium saucepan over medium/low heat, melt the butter. Add the garlic and stir.
  2. Increase the heat to medium/high and allow the butter to come to a boil. Boil for approximately 1 minute. 
  3. Reduce the heat to medium/low and simmer lightly for 7-8 minutes. You'll notice the milk fats have settled on the bottom of the pan and the clarified butter is on top.
  4. Use the strainer and cheesecloth to strain the ghee into a glass jar and discard the milkfat.

  5. Allow the ghee to cool and place the lid on the jar. 
  6. Store in a cool, dark place for up to 3 months. Use as you would regular butter and also to saute and pan-fry foods.
