How to Make Ghee

Ayughritam   Ghee is Life

What is Ghee?

The marvelous people at Ancient Organics tell us ~  “In India, ghee has always been a sacred and celebrated symbol of auspiciousness, nourishment and healing; especially in the daily rituals of cooking and worship.”

Ghee is a premium cooking oil celebrated for its taste, nutritional benefits, and medicinal qualities. Ayurveda, the ancient medical science of India, recognizes ghee as an essential part of a balanced diet, and considers it to be the best fat one can eat. Ghee is the very essence of butter; the end result of a long, slow, careful clarification process that removes all the moisture, milk solids and impurities. The absence of milk solids and water in ghee make it completely shelf stable. Ghee has one of the highest flash points (485ºF) which make this oil the best choice for high temperature cooking.”

Making it is simple, but if you’d rather purchase, contact Ancient Organics and see if they can ship to you.

Thanks to my extraordinary husband, Bhavaji who made the video and really is my every day bucket of ghee.

  1. Good timing for this recipie Laura! I was only yesterday asking my Indian neighbor, who I share a pranayama practice with, how to make ghee. We will learn together. Thank you!

  2. I love this simple and oh-so-helpful video love message! You’ve melted away any intimidation I had to make this soulful, nourishing food that I so love to eat. And, Laura, you are just as elegant and eloquent on camera as you are in person. (Nice cutaways, Bhavaji!)
