Turmeric Infused Ghee

Total Time: 15 minutes
Hands-on Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 1 cup of Ghee

Add flavor, spice and aroma to ghee for a delicious and easy way to add turmeric to curries, stir-fry, rice, bagels, bulletproof coffee, baked goods and more.

Use anytime you'd use butter.


2 teaspoons Turmeric Root, Cut & Sifted (Tea Bag Cut), Organic 1 lb.

2 sticks Unsalted Butter.


Melt two sticks of butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-low heat (3 to 5 minutes).

Use a spoon to scrape off the solids that rise to the top.

Add turmeric and salt.

Continue to simmer over medium-low heat until color begins to change from yellow to a golden amber (about 8 to 10 minutes).

Remove from heat and allow to cool for 3 to 5 minutes.

Pour through a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth into a resealable container.

Refrigerate for 15 minutes or more to harden.


This DIY clarified butter infused with turmeric has a higher smoke point, which means it is ideal for high-temperature cooking, sauteing and searing.
