        I'm so jealous; I can't find grass-fed ghee anywhere I look. I would have to make it, and I'm not quite at that point yet ;-)

            @close to $10.00/jar of ghee ( not grass fed either)~1lb vs $5.60 for 2 1/2lb blocks of Kerry gold ( organic valley & smjor are more expensive) its cheaper to make it! It took me a couple of times to figure out my method but I can make ghee in a out 45 min. And it's so tasty!

              I know you heat it to separate it (the cream/dairy), in a half pound block, how much ghee do you end up with? What I guess I am asking, is how much is separated.. what is the yield?

                If you bought the BIG jar of ghee (blue label w/the cow on it) ~1lb. Two 1/2lb blocks of Kerry gold fills that jar. There are some great instructions on the web for making ghee I started there and modified it based off of my stove (depends on whic burner I'm using as to how long it takes)

                  Butter is about ~10% milk solids. You also lose some in the coffee filter. Still cheaper than the jar.

                  Is clarified butter the same as ghee? I'm always afraid I'll burn the fat along with the milk solids, so I clarify using a ziplock bag as a separatory funnel.

                    Yep Clarified butter and ghee is the same thing. But I think sometimes the melting time can vary. I read if you melt it longer till it browns a little its more caramaly tasting. But I don't leave it that long when I make it.

                        This is on my to do list for this weekend, now that I finally got my hands on some Kerrygold. I've made it with regular butter and it was darn good, I imagine this batch will be awesome.

                          OK, I have to ask a bit of a difficult question for an online forum, lol. But what does ghee taste like? I aks because I've bought it once and it just tasted like butter that's been left on the bench to melt then rehardened. Truly yucky. I keep seeing people post about how great it is - is it different to the taste of reheated butter? It might be that I got a bad brand/batch, or just that I don't like it!

                            Ya'll are a bit too orgheesmic about it.

                            For me, it has its uses when cooking, but as a condiment it's not even close to being a replacement for regular butter.

                              I keep reading about ghee, and am going to try it -- can you tell me some of the ways you are using it?

                              Thanks!
