The traditional ghee manufacturing process

Ghee is nothing but the melted butter which is used in all manner of cooking recipes. You can use it in different ways, use it in cooking, use it as an ingredient or a substitute for butter. It is a very cooking oil which has a neutral taste and nutty flavor that goes well with most of the dishes. Ghee can be obtained from different sources like cow's milk, butter, and sheep's milk. Traditional Ghee Making Process There are several methods available to make ghee but here we will discuss the traditional method. Ghee manufacturing process originated in India when the women used to make this dairy staple at home in a traditional method. In this process the raw cow milk was boiled and then converted into curd. The curd was then churned by a wooden churned to separate it into butter and buttermilk. This butter was collected and placed on a heavy bottom pot and heated against medium flame. Once the butter is boiled a visible layer of solids are found at the bottom. Finally the clarified butter is strained in jars for use. This is the pure ghee which is yellow-golden in color. This was all about the traditional ghee making process. But this process is not ideal for bulk ghee making. There are several other advanced methods to make ghee like Direct Cream Method, Creamery Butter Method, Pre-stratification Method, and Continuous Method. The direct cream method is the famous one followed by lagrange ghee producers.
