how to make cultured ghee

 

So, I was looking through my Instagram feed and saw numerous mentions of cultured ghee and I was like, how exactly is this made?  I was imagining people leaving vats of ghee in dark places for months on end to get it culture.  So,  I turned to my favorite past time – Google and I discovered that it’s made by the same way traditional ghee is made but instead it is made with cultured butter.

Call me a penny pincher, I figured it would easier to make it myself.

3. Around the 10 minute mark the mixture will start making the same sounds of your stomach when you are hangry.  This is the water evaporating from the butter and keep a close eye on it.  You should hear this noise for 4 to 5 minutes and the ghee will be done.

4. Pour through some cheesecloth into a glass jar and seal tight with a lid.  You can store this on the counter for 6 months or you can store in your refrigerator for 9 months (Trust me, it’s not going to last this long as you will have eaten it all by then).

    How much will the one pound of butter make? Thanks for this recipe. I buy mine now but will definitely try this in a few weeks.
