Technically, yes – ghee is a version of clarified butter. Traditional clarified butter is made simply by heating butter and removing the milk solids which have risen to the top of the pot. To make ghee, butter is brought to a boil and cooked until all the moisture is boiled off, and all the milk solids (lactose and casein) have settled to the bottom. These milk solids which have settled on the bottom of the pot are intentionally burned or caramelized, developing the rich, nutty flavor you’ll find in 4th & Heart ghee. Put simply, ghee is the pure extraction of oil from butter.
