TM 5Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!
Put butter into TM bowl and cook without MC 90 mins / 120c / Sp4, with simmering basket placed on lid as a splatter guard.
Repeat without MC 30 mins / 120c / Sp4, with simmering basket placed on lid as a splatter guard
Check, if milk solids are very dark and resemble burnt bread crumbs at the bottom of the bowl, the ghee is ready. If still white, cook 3-5 mins more at same temperature and speed.
Place fine muslin/ nut milk bag over strainer and pour liquid ghee into sterilized jar.
Allow to cool completely, then refrigerate till needed.
Straining & Storage
Can be used as a substitute for oil - but has a strong taste and aroma, so not the best option for cakes and western desserts.
For TM31, cook at 100C / 120mins / Sp2 with simmering basket on lid as splatter guard.
Cooking milk/ dairy products over 90C causes burning at the bottom of the bowl. The burnt milk solids may stain the bowl. Can be cleaned with a vinegar wash and a bit of elbow grease.
