What is Ghee?

Categories: All Posts, Uncategorized|

Ghee is a class of clarified butter according to Diffen.

This is a great website to compare just about anything!!  Diffen explains the difference between Ghee and clarified butter.

Clarified butter is prepared by melting butter and allowing all the ingredients to separate by density. The water in the butter evaporates, milk solids sink to the bottom. Other solids that float on top are removed to acquire clarified butter.

Commercially, clarified butter can be prepared by direct evaporation. However, companies employ methods like decantation and centrifugation to obtain clarified butter.

Ghee is made by simmering unsalted butter in a cooking vessel until all water has evaporated and the milk solids, or protein, have settled to the bottom. The froth on top is spooned off intermittently. The ghee obtained is then strained into a container and cooled at room temperature till it solidifies.
