Ghee is clarified butter in other words its just the oil part of butter and is great for cooking. It has a very high smoke point so it doesn't burn. Traditionally used in Indian cooking it is becoming increasingly popular for everyday use due to its great health benefits. Can also be used on the skin as a base for essential oils for those with skin conditions. Can be left at room temperature which makes it good for taking travelling but will last a very long time if kept refrigerated.
