    Question How to use ghee

    I've been hearing about ghee here, and I saw some at Whole Foods Market and bought it. Now, what do I do with it?

    Cook with it as you would any oil. It's just clarified butter. It doesn't taste like butter, though. And it has a higher smoke point than butter. I use it a lot.

    Ghee is butter with all the solids removed, so it can withstand much higher temperatures without burning. So I like to use it for sauteing, frying, and the like.

    Does it have health benefits above using butter, or is is only preferable because of the smoke point?

    Some say it is preferable due to lower casein/other milk proteins content, even though I think casein is pretty low in butter too.

    I didn't like the taste of cooking with pure coconut oil, so I really didn't do it much, now I cook almost everything in coconut ghee, my ratio is about 2 parts coconut oil to one part ghee now but i started 50-50 and increased the coconut oil gradually. I don't know if it is any healthier than cooking with butter which I sometimes still do, but it sure is convenient that coconut ghee does not need refrigeration.
    Strive for healthy today.

    I think he means that he mixes ghee with coconut oil to make his own coconut ghee. Am I right, Kev?

    I just used ghee. I scrambled my 3 eggs in 1 Tbs. of it. It looked different than melted butter in the pan - more like oil. But it cooked the eggs nicely and the flavor was good. I guess I like it!
