Ghee – A Delight for the Tastebuds

September 5, 2011
What is Ghee?
Ghee is a delicious butter indulgence, without the digestive and health issues that come from regular butter.
Ghee is clarified butter – it is produced by heating butter until the milk solids and water are removed. Separating milk solids from the butterfat, removes lactose and protein (casein) – both being problematic to many. Removing the water translates into a fuller, less-diluted butter flavor. Additionally, removing milk solids and water allows for a higher smoke point, which makes it a great choice for cooking at higher heats (as long as the ghee is of good quality). Ghee contains important fatty acids that can aid in tissue healing and repair and vitamin/mineral absorption.
Ok, so that’s the good news, what’s the bad news?
Although you can clarify butter yourself at home, the process may seem daunting enough that you probably wouldn’t want to try it, which means you should be prepared to pay the price. For those of us more open to adventures in the kitchen, it’s an amazing process (look on youtube – try it!). Ghee can be expensive, it’s true, but if you treat Ghee as you would…well…a treat, then you will be using it sparingly and enjoying the butter-on-steroids flavor like you wouldn’t believe.
Scrambling eggs, sauteing shrimp and even spreading these crackers with delectably nutty-butter-flavored Ghee, is worth it.
Stir-fry veggies anyone?
