I was smitten the first time I tasted Ancient Organics Ghee; it’s that delicious!

Slip as little as a teaspoon (or less) into a bowl of hot cereal and it’s suddenly transformed into something very special. Eggs cooked in ghee are divine.
So is ghee on toast – and this is just breakfast.

I use it all day long, with vegetables, grains, in soups, desserts. I scarcely buy butter anymore. The flavor of this organic ghee is so deep and rich with caramel overtones, that it transforms the simplest things, from a baked potato to a bowl of polenta.

Fingerling Potatoes Browned in Rosemary Infused Ghee by Deborah Madison

This simple dish nicely shows off the distinctive flavor of ghee. The rosemary makes it more of a fall dish, but in spring I make a similar one with the first potatoes, tossed in ghee with spring herbs — chervil, tarragon, chives, parsley.
