I was a life long and devoted user of both butter and olive oil in all my cooking endeavors before being introduced to Ancient Organics Ghee. It lends the most supreme and comforting flavor to all foods it graces. It takes a bit of practice to get out of the old habit and into the new, but once you are there, you will never look back!
