Homemade butter and ghee is gluten-free. Butter is made from the organic milk cream at home, which is free from gluten content. However, make sure not to contaminate this with any other gluten products. A protein called casein is available in milk products. People who can’t handle gluten must make sure they are not intolerant for casein as well, otherwise, they need to check with professionals before including butter in their diet.

I used Organic A2 milk in this process, you can any other full cream milk as well to collect the cream.

I collected the milk cream for more than a week and I almost gathered more than 500 gms of milk cream and I made 180 ml of ghee out of it.

Milk cream is nothing but, every time you boil milk, there will be a layer of cream that stands on top of the milk. Gently remove that and store it in a container. Keep the collected milk cream in a refrigerator.

Ghee is very good for health.

  • They help with our gut health, heart, skin, bone, teeth, etc., especially our immune system
  • It holds a lot of good Vitamins and Fat. People are planning to go on a diet, you must not skip ghee. Since it holds good fat which is very important for your health.

There are few tips that would help you to take the butter out of the cream neatly and you can make ghee out of it.

I used juice blender for this process, Have some ice cubes ready at hand. I use ice cubes during the blending process and also to collect butter.

Once you collect the butter. You can find the blender to be very greasy and buttery. Do not scrub just like that to clean, it would make a mess. Add some hot water and salt to the blender, fill it up and wait for a few more mins, this would help to remove the grease. After 10 to 15 mins, it will be easy to clean.

Now let’s see the step by step process of making homemade ghee,

First thing is to collect the milk cream, I collected it for almost 1o days,

Now take the blender, add the cream, and some ice cubes as well. Blend for a min. Everything would mix well and it becomes like the below picture.

Now add few more ice cubes or cold water. Blend for few more mins, then it would become like a thick cream like below.

Add a little more cold water, continue blending, you can see it from outside, the butter starts to form on the top. Blend well until you see the butter on top. The butter will look like a light yellow frothy cream-like texture.

Now keep a bowl of ice-cold water ready.

Now take the butter squeeze it in your palm, and drop it in ice-cold water.

Once you gather all the butter from the blender. Now collect the butter together from the bowl, gently squeeze and remove the water and make a small ball out of it.

Now add this butterball to the pan and start cooking in a low flame.

Now the butter will start melting.

In between, it will form a foam on top, gently mix it and continue cooking on low flame.

Slowly after a few mins, the butter will get clear, and the impurities or the waste will come together and it will change color.

By the time, you turn off the stove make sure the ghee is clear, sometimes overcooking might burn it and the color of the ghee would become very dark. So keep an eye on it. Now use a cotton or muslin cloth to filter the ghee in a bowl.

Once you pour the ghee on the cloth, the waste would remain on the cloth and the ghee would have strained in a bowl.

Now you can remove the cloth and squeeze the extra ghee out of it and store the ghee in a container.

Perfect aromatic homemade ghee is ready. Store it in the refrigerator, if you are planning to use it for a long time, otherwise, you can keep it at room temperature.
