My friend Jennifer asked me how I make ghee. I've been pretty discouraged with the method I learned when we first started the GAPS diet. It involved lots of skimming, was time-consuming, and not that effective. I persisted with it anyway. But when Jennifer asked me, I started researching other methods. It's funny how I will continue doing something in a way that I don't like, but when someone asks me about it, that's when I look for a better way. How nutty is that? So the video above is the better way that I found this morning. The instructors advise only using unsalted butter because the salt causes foaming. I had never heard that before. I will be much more regular about making ghee with this method. I have come to really enjoy having this alternative oil for cooking. It's so incredibly flavorful!
