Whenever we do something for the first time it can be a bit daunting. This is the same for jumping out of an areoplane or making something in the kitchen that you have never done before.
Ghee is a fuel for the good bacteria in your gut
Assists with proper hydration of your tissues (joints, muscle and skin)
Boosts the nutritional profile of our meals (Vitamin A + D)
Enhances the flavor of the food you are consuming
Encourages secretions of digestive enzymes
Makes for a healthy and sparky brain
A few notable reasons why I really love making your own ghee:
You get to choose the butter and where it comes from, this means you can make a educated decision around getting the best quality butter you can. This just ensures that you get a fantastic nutrient profile when it comes to your fat soluble vitamins (A and D).
You can meditate some love into your ghee when you make it. Intention behind the food we eat make a difference when it comes to the end product. A meal made with love always tastes better!
It brings a sense of connection to the food we make. When we have ownership and involvement with the food that we eat it creates a bond of how the food we eat effects our body.
Ghee will last indefinitely. This is always handy to know, it means that you can make a larger quantity and make it less often (I'll make 2 liters at a time; which will last about 4-6 weeks in our home). It is interesting to note that there was ghee and honey found in the pyramids that could still be used.
It works out cheaper ($), that's always a bonus! This means there is more room in your budget for other quality ingredient to fill your pantry.
What you will need:
Unsalted butter (organic if possible)
Nut milk bag
Mason jar (to store the ghee)
