Ghee! What is it and why do you need it?

Ghee is butter, clarified butter, that is! What does that mean? It means that the butter (unsalted) has had all of the water and milk solids boiled off. It’s been used as a dipping sauce for seafood (lobster in particular) for many countless years. It’s kinda messy to make at home, although that certainly is an option! However, it is available for purchase in most grocery stores. You’ll pay a nice little price for it but if you only use it occasionally it will last you a long time. It is fully shelf stable and needs no refrigeration. The other great thing? It has a very high smoke point! You can, and should, use this to sear meat of any kind! It adds a very nice flavor, to say, a pot roast you sear and throw in the crockpot to continue cooking all day. It also works well in ANY seafood dish, taking the place of butter and olive oil. You can easily google the at home method to make your own ghee, so I won’t post that here. I’ll just share a few photos, tell you it is gluten free, sodium free and sing it’s praises! Let me know what you think in the comments! If you have any questions, I am all ears! Get ya some ghee! And be sure to come back and thank me! lol

Ghee settles at room temperature, so make sure you mix it up before taking any from the jar. 🙂
When using it for lobster dipping, I just heat it up on the stove next to whatever I’m cooking! Give it a good stir before plating. (Metal containers work best)!

If you learned something new, drop me a comment and a like!! As always, thanks for being here! ❤

Much love, The Glitzy Gourmet!
