FINALLY! An answer! Thanks a million, John.

I wish I knew where to locate this level of information, but short of that, I have the BTD Forum!



There is a ton of information on the internet that can be dug up through searches, it does take some time and effort.

One quick source that is usually reliable and has some links as well is Wikipedia

Hi koolaid,

if you like to read books: 'Fats that Kill; Fats that Heal' by Udo Erasmus, alive Publishers, @1987 is the source of much of this basic info.  Also highly praised is a book by Dr. Mary Enig ... can't recall its name, because I never have read it.

Ok, I'm a ghee convert. I bought a pound of unsalted Straus butter, used Rebecca Woods' recipe linked on this site, roasting a half pound in the oven at 300 degrees for an hour. Golden, yes. The scent, miraculous, better than most expensive colognes I've tried.

Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

 Cute.......but I gotta say......I just love the smell of ghee as well.   And so easy to make in the oven, right koolaid.   I just laugh every time I think about how 'afraid' I was to make it.

The aromatherapy of Ghee!  Very much a "comfort food scent".

Alright, already. I really HAVE to do this, now. We got our first cool nites here in the good ol' piedmont area of NC this past week and more are forecast. Also, since Rachel brought our attention to the Ancient Organics brand (which uses STRAUS milk for its ghee) I am going to do it. May be as close as I get to buying their ghee for a while. I can buy Straus Eureopean style cultured unsalted butter for $5.89/pound and I need a reason to swoon! I'm sure that  on one of these really clear, really crisp, autumn nights, the smell of the Ghee simmering in MY oven will be equal to the sensory experience you guys/gals describe. It really does sound like something you gotta do at least once! Hope I'll have Italy's outcome and end up saying, "Why didn't I do this sooner?!?"

The scent, miraculous


I too agree 100%. Just made my first batch ever, thanks to the wonderful descriptions and hearty recommendations in the ghee threads. The wonderful scent was the best part. The smell of baking is the one that makes me feel it's truly home (I do not bake...     I used to, in my youth), but this one feels super-home, so sweet, enveloping, heart warming, intoxicating, relaxing.

And we have another one, Ladies and Gentlemen!

Enchante!  

Thanks dear Victoria, I'm on cloud nine! I keep it on my counter in a small ceramic jar covered by a small ceramic saucer as a lid, and go there every now and then, raise the lid and sniff!!

I hope you will eventually be willing to part with some of the treasured bowl of pure fragrant gold, so that you can dip in a spoon and cook with it!

Clean spoon every time! Pure gold, that's it... love it. For sure, I won't delay. I already had my 1st spoon as is - and thought I was never going to be hungry again!

, I keep mine on the counter too, but not covered. so when i walk by it, i can smell it. it does smell sooooooooooooo good. it's like a comfort food/smell isn't it. the DH may have to go, as he said the other day that whatever I had in the oven (ghee), stunk. WELL!!!!!!

I took the plunge and made my first batch of ghee last night and used it to sautee this mornings breakfast.  It was everything I've been reading it was!  Thanks for the oven recipe (don't remember exactly who it was that posted it  )!  So easy and delicious and good for you...can't get better than ghee!

yael p and Mare eo, I'm glad you both found the oven method so easy. since I love me some ghee, 'tis really good I have a really easy way to make it. then I don't mind to make it and I am sure to always have some on hand.       never thought I could 'eat' it by itself, but melted a T. the other morning and had some and it wasn't bad.
