    I use to buy this... None I make my own w/ Kerry gold unsalaried butter @$2.79/ half lb. 1lb of butter will fit in the parity farms large jar.

    To make ghee place butter in pot, over. Burner set on low, let butter melt, and slowly bubble, the solids will both bubble to the top, and fall to the bottom of the pan... As the butter turns to ghee it will begin to turn a golden brown color. On my stove this takes about 45min to 1 hr. when it's done, I put a fine mesh strainer over a 2cup measuring cup, line it w/4layers of cheese cloth and drain the ghee into the measuring cup.... Once everything is strained into the measuring cup I then transfer to my storage vessel... You'll be left w/all the solids in the cheese cloth....

      I make my own ghee now too. It's really easy and a bit cheaper. Use pure grass-fed butter and there are no questions.

        Order it by the case or half-case to save a bit. Much tastier than the Purity brand. Purity is a very pale yellow; Pure Indian Foods is a deep, rich yellow -- something like the color of pastured egg yolks. Delicious.

          Thanks Shijin13, awm8604, Martha and KellyS.
          I'm not sure that I love it enough to make it.
          It might be that I'm missing the salt from the butter.

            How long does it last for? I made some about a month and a half ago, so I don't know if it's still good anymore

              Mine lasts a week b/c of how much we consume in our cooking... I either use co, ghee, or bacon fat. If your concerned by how long it will last store it in the fridge... I keep it, and a small jar of bacon fat on the counter, right on top of the VAT of CO... my kids ask me for tastes of ghee... so I give it to them...

                Here's my totally unscientific approach to determining if something like butter or lard is "still good": Give it a whiff. If it doesn't smell off, it's probably still good. (And if you don't know what "off" smells like, then...uh...I don't know. I just know the smell when I smell it.)

                That said, if you make either correctly, there shouldn't be anything in there that goes bad. I keep my (homemade) browned butter/ghee on the counter, along with my coconut oil.

                My ghee doesn't set up, by the way. I don't know why. It's very liquid -- literally "butter oil" -- but tastes delicious. I drizzled some on a sweet potato last week and it was so good I almost cried.

                  $13 for ghee of questionable origin...I don't know. For $5.50, I can buy a pound of Kerrygold butter and render my own in about 30 minutes. I'm almost out of ghee and will be making more soon.

                      Mine only sets up when it gets really cold... definitely butter oil!

                        Purity Farms clearly states, "From Grass Fed , Pastured Cows."

                          Not sure if this thread is still active, but I did email Purity Farms asking if their cows were 100% grass fed. I've pasted their answer (I don't know what CROPP Cooperative is, but the email did come from Organic Valley/Purity Farms):

                          Thank you for contacting CROPP Cooperative.

                          CROPP Cooperative's farmers are required to provide their animals with outdoor access. Cows are required to have access to pasture, the outdoors, sunlight and fresh air; weather permitting. The amount of time depends on the time of year, the weather, the feeding program of the individual farmer and the regional location of the farm. Most of our farmers are in northern areas of the country and pasture is available for approximately 6 months of the year.

                          All animals receive 100% organic feed. All cows get a mixture of organic forages and organic grains in their diet. Forages are grass, hay, silage, baylage and other “green feeds”. Hay is simply dried plant material like grass and alfalfa. Silage and baylage are fermented or “wet” plant material. Grains include corn, barley, soybeans, oats, field peas and flax. The amounts may vary depending on the individual farmers management techniques.

                            Found this link

                            So they are not 100% grass-fed (they say that the cows are fed 100% organic GRAINS). I found this link which says the ghee is from 100% grass-fed cows:

                              This is only $7 at my local grocer. I'm stocking up until they catch on to what a bargain it is.
