What is this Stuff? GHEE

It's the notorious Ghee!  Ghee has gotten a bad rap and rumors have been spreading around that Ghee is some type of lard.  Incorrect, Ghee is nothing more than clarified butter.   In fact, Ghee should really be your friend.  It tastes like gods nectar, and adds loads of flavor to anything it blesses with it's golden kiss.

Clarified butter is a healthy cooking oil due to its content of essential fatty acids which are an essential part of our diets. It is rich in easy-to-digest short chain fatty acids and vitamins A, D, E & K. It also contains 3% linoleic acid which has anti-oxidant properties.  Ghee high smoke point which makes it great for cooking. It also means that it does not produce damaging free radicals.
