Homemade Ghee

Homemade Ghee

Love ghee? Making your own is surprisingly simple! All you need is four sticks of our grass-fed butter and a little time and patience. What would you make with this tasty, homemade ghee?

Makes 1.5 cups ghee


  • 2 cups (4 sticks) Vital Farms Unsalted Butter


  • Add the butter to a medium pot with high sides and heat over medium-low heat until the butter has melted and is slightly foamy. Use a spoon to skim the foam off the top several times as it rises to the surface.
  • Reduce heat to low and continue cooking until the milk solids have browned but not burned and have sunk to the bottom. Place a mesh strainer lined with a piece of cheesecloth or a coffee filter over a jar. Then pour in the ghee, being careful to leave the browned bits in the pan.
  • Let the jar cool completely before placing in the fridge. Ghee may be stored up to 1 month in the fridge.

Don’t toss the browned milk solids! Use them to add a nutty flavor to your pancakes or biscuits, a quick pasta sauce, or your morning scramble (no substitutions needed).
