We eat Ghee. It is the only butter that we use. We use it for toast only!

I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me.

According to ayureveda physicians they recommend ghee for a host of ailments ranging from poor digestion to memory loss.It is said to be liquid gold.It has the healing benefits of butter without the impurities.Ghee is claimed to be beneficial for the whole body.Ghee lubricates the connective tissues and promotes flexibility.It is used to promote memory,intelligence,quality semen and enhance digestion.Modern science tells us that ghee harbours phenolic antioxidants which bolster the immune system.100 yr old ghee is used to treat alcoholism,epilepsy,fever and vaginal pain.Can be used topically to put on wounds,inflammation and blisters.You can take 2 teas a day as a supplement.You can use it to cook in place of butter.So there you go.Good for you but like any fat in moderation.

I LOVE ghee as a special treat when I go out to for Indian food, but I don't cook with it - although it is available at my normal grocery store in the international foods aisle... There is just something about a nice warm piece of naan bread with melted ghee on it. YUM!!!

I get it from health food stores.I dont really know too much about other uses on how to use it.It is clarified butter and the buttermilk is taken out of it so it is pure butter fat and very rich.I guess try googling it and see what comes up.I will do it too as Im curious too.Cherie.I dont really fry either but need something to do stirfrys in etc but just a little.I also use cold pressed olive oil but I think if you cook with this the composition is changed and not as good as cold.

Ghee is supposed to be good for us according to ayurveda.Anyway it heats to high temps without burning so is good for frying.
