How to Make Ghee in the Slow Cooker

Slow-Cook Your Own Ghee (aka Clarified Butter)

Ghee is a variation of clarified butter that originated in India. With a higher shelf life than butter, a higher smoke point, and a distinct, nutty taste and aroma, ghee can up the ante on just about any recipe. However, it may seem daunting to spend the money on ready-made ghee or to clarify your own butter over a stove top. Not with a slow cooker! In this recipe from Slow Cook Modern by Liana Krissoff ($25), simply slow-cook some butter and within a few hours, you will have your very own batch of ghee.

Notes

If you want to increase the batch size, use a larger cooker — don't fill the cooker more than halfway with butter, as it sometimes plops and bubbles as it cooks.

How to Make Ghee in the Slow Cooker

Ingredients

  1. 3 pounds of unsalted butter

Directions

  1. Cut the butter into chunks and
 put them in a 3 1/2-quart 
 or larger slow cooker. Put the lid on slightly askew or propped above the rim of the insert with chop- sticks and cook on high for 4 to 5 hours; there will be a layer
of crunchy-looking foam on the top that will be golden at the edges, and the layer of solids in the bottom of the pot will have turned from white to caramel colored. Try not to jostle the cooker as the butter cooks as that can cause it to sputter and plop.
  2. Let the butter cool a bit and then use a large spoon to skim off the foam (discard it or save
it for spreading on bread and sandwiches). Without disturbing the solids at the bottom, ladle the clear, golden ghee into clean, dry containers—glass canning jars are ideal. Discard the solids. Let the ghee cool completely, then put the lids on and store in a cool spot or in the refrigerator for up to several months.
