Cooking with Ghee

Ghee is known as clarified butter and is usually made from the milk of a buffalo or cow. Its used in Indian cooking, and is thought of as a healthy alternative for cooking other than using butter or other oils. Our favorite Ghee is Vital Ghee which we purchase on Amazon. Its on the pricier side for quality but the flavor is so delicious, I’ll sometimes just spread this on a cracker.
