  • Do you prefer Ghee over Butter?

    Yes, I know it's essentially the same thing. But researching Ghee, I see that they take out the dairy contents, and make it purely fat.

    So should I be using Ghee on my veggies instead of Kerry Gold butter?

    A lot of people that have problems with dairy do fine with ghee. I am in that boat. I love ghee. Others seem to do fine w grass fed butter like KG.

      Butter over ghee, ANY time. But only cultured butter. Ghee is OK, and perhaps superior to butter when frying at high temperatures, but if I do so, I usually use lard or coconut oil instead... I have made a bit of ghee, but it never really caught onto me.

      I'm a Dane - we live for butter!

      Oh, btw - I hear that KerryGold is recommended butter, so stick with it if you like it! I'm all for organic Danish, cultured butter. Yuuum!

        I love them both, but ghee is better for high temperature cooking.

          Ghee never did anything for me. Expensive stuff, too.

          And for high-temp cooking, I much prefer lard, coconut oil, or in a pinch leftover bacon grease.

          I'll stick with the KG for my veggies.

              I make my own ghee... I buy organic grass fed/finished butter... put it in a cast iron pot put in on the burner get a delicate boil (just above a simmer) going...and let it get golden (on my stove that takes about 45mins) then I strain it w/cheese cloth and transfer to a storage jar... love, love, love... and way freaking cheaper than Ghee in the store..

                +1 Dairy intolerance, butter makes me sick, ghee does not. Taste wise I'd choose butter if I tolerated it--but I still love my ghee!

                  ...ghee to me is a jar full of over-priced blandness. Hands down decision here --> butter for the win...hebs

                  ps...the one advantage to ghee, I can easily binge on cold, salted butter, mmmmm. I would NEVER binge on ghee!

                      I met someone with very serious, gall-bladder removing allergies, including lactose and casein, and she eats ghee, no prob at all. If you have any sensitives, it seems like an awesome way to go.

                      It doesn't taste as yummy though -- so use it as a fat, not as a flavoring.

                        I really didn't like ghee when I first tried it. It grew on me. Ghee for cooking when I want to avoid the taste of coconut oil and don't have any reserved beef/ lamb fat to hand, and butter on my greens. And fried eggs. And sweet potatoes.

                          I prefer the taste of butter over ghee; however, I use ghee. I avoid dairy. Ghee doesn't taste bad or anything, butter just tastes better.

                            Homemade ghee (from unsalted Kerrygold), brought to slightly brown, develops an amazing flavor that butter just does not have. I say both: they are so different.
                            Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

                              Ghee for cooking....Butter for eating (on veggies, or just eating it straight)
