So, what is ghee?

Ghee is a type of clarified butter that originated in ancient India and has been used for centuries in Indian cooking. It is made by simmering butter to remove the milk solids and water, leaving behind a pure golden liquid with a rich, nutty flavor. Ghee has a high smoke point, making it a great choice for high-heat cooking, such as frying or sautéing. It also contains healthy fats and antioxidants, and is considered a staple ingredient in Ayurvedic medicine due to its numerous health benefits. Ghee can be used as a spread, cooking oil, or even added to hot beverages for a delicious and nutritious boost.
