1 lb. butter
Melt the butter slowly on the stovetop over medium heat. Once it is melted, it will be foamy at the top.
Use a slotted spoon to skim off as much of the foam as you can. Continue to let the butter heat for about 5 to 10 minutes. The butter will turn perfectly clear so you can see all the way through; you will see the milk proteins settle at the bottom. At this point the ghee is done.
Use a cheesecloth to strain the ghee into a jar. Wait for it to cool before putting a lid on it. The ghee will remain a liquid at room temperature, or turn solid in the refrigerator.
