Nutrition facts

Ghee is a clarified butter and is the only fat that can be heated to a high temperature. As once the butter is clarified its chemical components will not be change when heated. Other fats create cancerous bi-products when heated.

Ghee also has some anti-inflammatory properties.

Use it on toast, to cook, fry. Delicious on yoghurt. Children love it. It is my only non-vegan recipe!
