Homemade Ghee (Slow Cooker)

I have been meaning to do this post for so long.  Every time I make ghee, I tell myself that I will take pictures and finish the post but always something or the other.  I used to be scared to make ghee as I used to think I won't know when it is done.  My father in law makes Homemade Ghee all the time, so never had to make it myself.

Recently I tried making it in the slow cooker, as I know I don't have to worry about checking it every few minutes.  I have a tiny slow cooker, so I was like this will be perfect for making the ghee at home.  To my surprise it came out so good, so now I always make it at home specially for diva for everyday puja.  It is much more economical to make it at home and you know its fresh.

Ingredients:

  • 12 quarters unsalted butter (used Costco brand)

Directions:

Unwrap the butter quarters one by one and place it in the slow cooker's ceramic pot.  After all the quarters are in the pot, turn the cooker on high for about 2 hours.  Do not cover all the way, keep it slightly uncovered so that when it cooks the steam doesn't stay with in.

First let it cook on high for about a couple of hours and then reduce the heat to low and let it go for another couple of hours depending on the cooker.  After 3 hours just double check and see if its done.

Once it is done, let it cool down a little.  Then strain it in a air tight glass jar.
