Herb Butter and Ghee

 Traditional Ghee

Traditional Ghee

Ghee is a traditional clarified butter of ancient India. It is basically unsalted butter cooked down so that the milk solids collect and are strained. You can read about it here: http://wellnessmama.com/24267/make-ghee/. In the recent batch, we added buttercup essence, cardamom, turmeric, ginger, clove and sea salt (anti-inflammatory and uplifting). I'm also super into herb butters: check out this link for some great ideas: http://markbittman.com/spicing-up-butter-with-herbs. That said, you can pretty much make it all up on your own. Today, I made one with fresh herbs from the garden: dill, marjoram, cilantro, borage, basil...and added salt and lemon pepper. I also made one from dried herbs: coriander, cumin, turmeric, cardamum, marjoram...and salt and pepper. The second is totally my favorite, but I love them both. They're all super easy to make and yummy.
