And the last of our year-round favorites... The Queen's Organic Ghee has a long, rich history (over 5000 years). It is a class of clarified butter that originated from the Indian subcontinent. It is commonly used in South Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines, traditional medicine, and religious rituals. Our Ghee is prepared by churning our own butter from organic cows cream, then simmering the butter, skimming any impurities from the surface, and then pouring and retaining the clear, still liquid fat, while discarding the solid residue that settled on the bottom. The texture, color, and taste of ghee depend on the quality of the butter, the source of the milk used in the process and the duration of the boiling. (Traditionally, ghee is always made from the milk of cows, which are considered sacred, and it is a sacred requirement in Vedic traditions. There is even a Hindu hymn to ghee). Finding Ghee pure enough to use for sacred purposes is a problem these days for devout Hindus since many large-scale producers add salt to their product. Which is one of the reasons we started to make it, ours is as pure at it gets and because we do each step ourselves the sacred quality of the end product is ensured. You can even come watch us make it!

I also use it because it is an ideal fat for deep frying because its smoke point (where its molecules begin to break down) is (485 °F (250 °C), which is well above typical cooking temperatures of around 392°CF (200°C).

Easy to infuse with other herbs or spices for lots of yummy flavors like, garlic, rosemary, or cinnamon, Ghee is known for its use in Bhang (an edible preparation of cannabis that has been used for over 2000 years by Hindu monks to boost meditation and achieve transcendental states ) in order to heat the cannabis to cause decarboxylation, making the drink psychoactive.
