Ghee from Ancient Organics
Simply put, this is the most outstanding ghee we've ever tasted. The incredibly nice folks at Ancient Organics take more than just pride in making this traditional Indian clarified butter. They buy the best butter available, 100% organic Straus Creamery butter, and clarify it in their Berkeley kitchens. They take many steps to remain true to the history and tradition of ghee production - for example, they only produce ghee in 'Shukla Paksh', when the moon is full or waxing, because this is the most peaceful time of the month.
The result is a beautifully smooth, creamy fat that will heat to intensely hot temperatures without burning. It is superb for sautes, baking, or frying and makes a flavorful topping for everything from baked potatoes to freshly popped popcorn.
