    i use butter on top of fish or chicken before putting it in the oven. can I use Ghee for things like that too ? or only when heating it first

    is it healthier than butter? i mean why do people like it over other things?

    Ghee is clarified butter. So, like butter, but without the milk proteins that many people are allergic to. It's a good option for some people with dairy sensitivities (if it's been clarified well enough) if they like butter but can't have it. It's not "healthier", just different.

    Use it however you want for cooking. I found the clarified butter I made was too hard to spread like butter, and had to keep it at room temperature all the time.

    It tastes better cold than butter because of the browning, imo. I cook with it and put in my bp coffee sometimes

    I use it mainly for sautéing, although I have been know to slather it on seed and nut crackers. Ghee has a higher smoke point than butter and most other oils, including coconut and olive. Use it wherever you would use butter or oils. Like butter, it is pretty solid at colder temperatures, soft and liquidy at higher ones. I do not refrigerate mine. Depending on the time of year, it can be harder or softer out of the cupboard, but never solid.

    Dip lobster in it.
    5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106.5 lbs because of sugar cheating.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.

    Glad to see this. I had seen it mentioned, so when I happened to find a great deal on it, I bought a couple of jars today. I used it for our salmon tonight. Thanks for all the tips!
