Better Belly Blueprint Recipes
– Ghee –

I love Ghee. It is delicious. No milk solids and all butter fat – full of fat-soluble vitamins only if you use grass-fed cow butter. Anyplace where you need saturated fat, you could use Ghee. I include it in many of my recipes.

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb grass-fed butter (unsalted Kerrygold is a reliable brand)
  • 16 oz Mason jar
  • Funnel or stainless-steel strainer to place into Mason jar
  • Cheesecloth placed into funnel or strainer

 

 

Preparation:

  1. Begin to heat a saucepan on low heat
  2. Place butter in pan
  3. Butter will melt slowly and white foam will start to form on top
  4. As butter continues to heat, the white foam will start to precipitate into white particles that settle to the bottom (these are milk solids), and the liquid (this will be the pure butter fat) will start bubbling (be aware of splatter – use splatter screen)
  5. As the bubbling subsides, the white particles on the bottom will start to brown slightly
  6. Pour liquid (this is very hot) into the funnel or strainer lined with the cheesecloth
  7. The golden liquid that collects in the Mason jar is pure, delicious, healthy butter fat. This is Ghee
  8. Ghee does not have to be refrigerated; use for cooking or whatever suits you
  9. Ghee is the perfect cooking oil. It is stable at temperatures to 500 degrees F.

My Favorite Paleo Recipes:
Apple Crisp with Honey

evolution rDesserts can be decadent and unhealthy. This is neither. It is Paleo, delicious, and satisfying – at least for my taste. You could think of this as the filling for an apple pie without the dough and without the junk.

I love Ghee. It is delicious. No milk solids and all butter fat – full of fat-soluble vitamins only if you use grass-fed cow butter. Anyplace where you would use butter, you could substitute Ghee. I also use it with my Bulletproof Coffee, which has been popularized by David Asprey. I will post that recipe in the near future.

 

Ingredients:

• 1 lb grass-fed butter (unsalted Kerrygold is a reliable brand)
• 16 oz Mason jar
• Funnel to place into Mason jar
• Natural Brown #4 size coffee filter (ex: Melita) or cheesecloth placed into funnel

 

Preparation:

• Begin to heat a saucepan on low heat

• Place butter in pan

Ghee 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

• As butter continues to heat, the white foam will start to precipitate into white particles that settle to the bottom (these are the milk solids), and the liquid (this will be the pure butter fat) will start bubbling (be aware of splatter)

• As the bubbling subsides, the white particles on the bottom will start to brown

• Pour liquid from saucepan into the funnel lined with the coffee filter (this liquid is very hot!)

Ghee 3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

• The golden liquid that collects in the Mason jar is pure, delicious, healthy butter fat. This is the Ghee.

 

• The Ghee does not have to be refrigerated; use for cooking or whatever suits you

 

Ghee is the perfect cooking oil. It is stable at temperatures to 500 degrees F.
