Ghee is the Sanskrit word for clarified butter, also known as drawn butter. organic butter Our butter is from Jersey Cows rasied on Iowa Amish farms, with no antibotics, no injected hormones, and is from grass fed milk (cows come in during the winter only). The rest of the year they are left to graze on organic grass fields in open pastures. This produces the highest quality milk available, and shows in the rich, caramel-like taste of this premium ghee. Substitute for butter in your favorite recipes (makes heavenly cookies!) pour onto popcorn, steamed vegetables, mashed potatoes, rice and other grains. Stays fresher longer because water content is removed.
