Easy To Make Ghee

Hello everyone and welcome,

Today, you are going to see just how easy it is to make your own Ghee. For those that may be wondering……what exactly is Ghee, why would I want to make it and how does it benefit my body?

Well……..let’s dive in and find out.

What is Ghee?

Ghee is clarified butter, made from unsalted cultured butter from grass-fed cow’s with the milk proteins removed. Cultured means that it contains lactic acid due to the fermenting process.

It has a high smoke point up to 485°F, making it perfect for baking, cooking, and so much more. May I also mention it has an incredible flavor even better than butter.

Oh, and one of my favorite aspects is it does require refrigeration for up to 1 month.

For those who are lactose intolerant many can tolerate ghee due to the milk protein being removed and did I mention it is highly favored in Indian cuisine and beauty regimens and has been used for centuries.

The key to making the shortcut version of Ghee is using butter that is unsalted and cultured. Which means the cream has been “ripened” or fermented by inoculating pasteurize cream with strains of lactic bacteria (good bacteria). The cream is allowed to age for about 48 hours and then churned. The result is butter that has a rich buttery aroma and flavor.

Why make Ghee when you can buy it?

  1. It’s easy to make.
  2. You can make more for far less than store bought.
  3. You can choose the quality of butter to make it with.

What are the benefits of using Ghee?

Here are some the benefits of this liquid gold…….

  1. Great source of fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E, & K2.
  2. The vitamin K2 in Ghee has been shown to help with bone growth, calcifications, and tooth decay.
  3. Shown to lower cholesterol and body fat.
  4. Shown to reduce inflammation.
  5. Helps with better nutrient absorption.
  6. Great for skin and hair (see how to use it here).
  7. A high smoke point of 485°.
  8. Can be kept at room temperature for 1 month and up to 1 year in the refrigerator.

Now that we’ve gone over all the details of Ghee……it’s time for the best part. Let’s make some Ghee!

Supplies:

  • A medium heavy bottom saucepan
  • 1 lb organic butter (unsalted-organic cultured or grass-fed cultured butter or it may say contains lactic acid)
  • A fine wire mesh strainer
  • A glass jar or bowl with lid for storage

Method:

  • Add your butter to your pan.
  • Melt over medium-low heat ( I set my stovetop to 4)
  • Once the butter is melted reduce heat to a simmer.
  • Let it simmer away for 35-40 minutes. (During this time, the butter will go through several stages. It will foam, bubble, this is the milk solids separating. Once the Ghee is done, it will be a lovely golden brown. The milk solids will have browned and fallen to the bottom of the pan. The foaming and bubbling will stop your ghee is done.)
  • Allow it to cool for 5 minutes, pour your ghee into the glass container using a fine mesh strainer to catch all the milk solids.
  • Your ghee can be used right away….it will be in liquid form at this point but if you let it sit overnight it will be a nice creamy spreadable texture.
  • Ghee is far richer in flavor than butter, so a little goes a long way. It can be used in place of cooking oil to meet all your cooking and baking needs.

The stages of making ghee.

I hope you will give this recipe a try and enjoy it as much as my family, friends and I do. Please feel free to let me know, how you and the people in your life enjoyed it as well.

Bath Pulls Toxins Out, Improves Muscle and Nerve Function, Reduces Inflammation and Improves Blood Flow

Hello everyone and welcome,

Today I wanted to share an article that I thoroughly enjoyed and I thought you would too. As a part of my weekly self-care routine, I LOVE a detox/nourishing bath a couple times a week before bed. It’s so relaxing and rejuvenating and I find that I sleep so much deeper when I take them.

I do my best to be very consistent as this was a pledge to myself for better self-care. It helps to ease the stress of life and strengthen me to take on another day. We all owe it to ourselves to invest time to do things like this for ourselves ON A REGULAR BASIS…..because it truly is a necessity. Besides who doesn’t want to feel relaxed and rejuvenated.

One of my favorite recipes to use is……..

 

1/2 C Magnesium Chloride Flakes (better quality than Epsom salt)

1/4 Pink Himalayan Salt

4 drops organic lavender essential oil

4 drops organic ylang-ylang essential oil

1 Tbsp organic extra virgin olive oil

Your Razor Moisture Strip Contains Hidden Dangers

Screenshot_2017-08-09-16-04-55-1

Hello everyone and welcome,

Today, I found a great article that I thought would be beneficial to many…..so I must share.

I just have to say it is ridiculous the number of toxins we are exposed to. I feel like nothing is safe. Our food, air, and water all contaminated with toxins. Now your razor has toxins as well. Never did I think toxins would be used in making of razors. When it comes to razors my only concern used to be just trying not to cut myself while using it. Now there is more to be concerned about when buying razors.

Check out the article below and see just what I’m talking about!

The Benefits of “Milk Thistle ” 

20170619_131055_0

 

Hello everyone and welcome,

Today, I want to share a video on a herb that I really love. Milk Thistle is a must have in my daily supplement regimen. Believe it or not, it was my youngest daughter who brought all of the wonderful benefits of the herb/weed to my attention. We were just having our daily convo and one thing I always ask is…..tell me something NEW. Which means it can’t be something you learned in school. It has to be something you learned independently of schooling. So she tells me all about this wonderful herb and I am truly impressed with all that she shared with me.

She finally ends the convo by saying….you should do some research on it and see for yourself and tell me what you learned. The nerve of this kid using my own line on me….lol. I have to admit that I love that she has a genuine interest in topics like this.

Needless to say, I heeded her wise advice and did some research and now I want to share that information with all of you.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and I hope you found the information to be as beneficial as I have!

Until Next Time,
