Food from the gods - liquid gold
Ghee is a staple and rightfully so regardless of which diet you are on. Modern science now verifies what Ayurvedic health science has said for thousands of years : Ghee has a host of health and cooking benefits and is good for the mind and spirit. A long time favorite of yoga practitioners, ghee lubricates the connective tissues and promotes flexibility. Among other things, this 'superfood' enables weight loss, provides energy, improves immunity, fights inflammation, improves eyesight, and helps in better absorption of nutrients in herbs and spices. It is lactose-free, so even people with a dairy intolerance can have it, provided you’re very careful to strain off ALL the milk solids.
Ghee is so simple to make, and much cheaper than buying it. It tastes better fresh, too, and it lasts for a very long time. Scale this recipe to your requirement.
