Directions:
Place block of unsalted butter into a metal dish or pan. Leave in the oven for 45-60 minutes. Take it out and carefully pour the golden fat from the top (Ghee), making sure that the white liquid at the bottom stays in the pan. Discard the white liquid. Keep in glass jars and refrigerate. With some varieties of butter the white liquid accumulates at the top. In that case put the dish in the fridge. As it cools down the ghee will become solid, and you will be able to pour the liquid off and wipe the resy of it with paper towels

Ghee is a clarified butter. It is traditionally used in many cultures around the world for cooking and baking. Butter can be used for cooking very effectively. However small amounts of whey in the butter often burns. Also whey contains lactose and some milk proteins, which many GAPS patients have to avoid in their diet. Ghee on the other hand does NOT contain any whey, milk protein or lactose at all, just milk fat, and does not burn!
