    Ghee is a type of clarified butter used in the cuisines of India and the Middle East. Traditionally, it's made by gently heating cow's-milk butter until its water content evaporates and its milk solids can be skimmed and strained away, leaving behind only the liquid fat.

    it is made by melting sweet but and skimming off the scum. leaving it clear which is why it is also called clarified butter.

    Its just butter melted so the solids sink to the bottom, and the 'ghee' is the clear stuff on the top.

    Ghee is a type of clarified butter used in the cuisines of the Middle East. Traditionally, it's made by gently heating cow's-milk butter until its water content evaporates and its milk solids can be skimmed and strained away, leaving behind only the liquid fat.

    “Clarified butter is very similar, but it’s sometimes made using high heat, whereas ghee is simmered at 100 degrees or less,”. Ghee differs slightly in its production. The process of creating traditional clarified butter is complete once the water is evaporated and the fat is separated from the milk solids. However, the production of ghee includes simmering the butter, which makes it nutty-tasting and aromatic.

    Butter, with the milk solids cooked out, which gives it a MUCH higher smoking point than regular butter.
