Makin Ghee

Do you like this beautiful bowl of Ghee?
We are Keeping Kaio off Gluten and Casein.  His holistic doctor noted that ghee is casein free.  So I've been making it for cooking and passing on rye bread.  It is pretty easy to do.  Just boil the butter for 15 minutes and then strain.  I used raw butter from an Amish buying club.  
The first batch I made, I thought was burnt.  But it turned out to just be extra caramelized.  oh it was so delicious.  
The ghee was great, but not as good for you as High Vitamin Butter Oil.  Here is one that is grass fed and organic:  

Since Halloween and Kaio's birthday have passed, we are back on the no-sugar experiment (seeing if taking the sugar out of our diets calms everyone down).  Everyday this week I've made high protein breakfast for the kids, consisting of sausage, rye bread with peanut butter, and a cup of liquid vitamins diluted in water (we call it juice).
So far no difference.  But Nala is still getting sweets during her three days at daycare.  I do need to do something about that.


  1. are you making or buying the rye bread? Most has sugar and flour...

  2. I bought it through this WAP coop and it is old fashioned German style that doesn't have wheat or sugar or even yeast. But I just saw that Rye has Gluten. For some reason I thought it was gluten free. brain fart.
