Guest Blog - Ghee-licious: Butter's Gold Child

When it comes to butter, most people think of spreading it on toast or using it to cook. But have you ever heard of ghee? It's basically the superhero of the butter world. And let me tell you, ghee is not just a food, it's a way of life.

First off, ghee is like butter's hotter, smarter cousin. It's made by simmering butter until all the milk solids are caramelized, and then strained out, leaving behind a golden, delicious, and pure butterfat. And let's be real, who wouldn't want to be friends with someone like that?

But it's not just about its looks - ghee has got some serious health benefits too. It's rich in healthy fats, vitamins, and antioxidants, and has been shown to help improve digestion, reduce inflammation, and even boost brain function.

Do you smell that smoke in the air? Probably not! Ghee’s incredibly high smoke point makes it excellent for high temperature frying, searing and sautéing. Move over grapeseed and canola, there’s a new fat in town!

Now, some people might say that ghee is just butter without the water and milk solids. To those people, we say, “Ghee-t outta here!" Ghee is so much more than just butter. It's a condiment, a cooking oil, a flavor enhancer, and even a skincare product. Yes, you read that right. Ghee can be used as a moisturizer, lip balm, and even a hair mask. Talk about multitasking!

And let's not forget about the taste. Ghee has a caramel-ly, brow buttery flavor that can take any dish to the next level. That flavour is derived from the caramelized milk proteins and sugars that are found in butter. It’s like the Beyoncé of the culinary world - (GHEE-yoncé?) It just makes everything better.

So if you haven't tried ghee yet, what are you waiting for? It's time to join the ghee-naissance and embrace the delicious, healthy, and downright hilarious world of clarified butter. Because let's be real, life is too short, ghee-t it on!
