Questionable Ghee?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created February 19, 2013 at 4:16 AM

Hi guys,

Recently in this grocery shop I have found a 2 pound jar of ghee for $5. For reference, 1 pound butter (non-organic) is about $5, and I have also heard that ghee is much more expensive than butter due to the additional work.

I'm not sure if this is a really great deal, or the ghee is of questionable quality and I should not buy it. Any thoughts?

Also, I've heard that we should prioritize our budget by buying the highest quality fats available. But, If I buy non-organic Coconut Oil instead of organic, does it really make a difference?

Thanks guys!

I second making your own from good quality butter. Then you know where it comes from. It's really not hard, you just have to be right there at the stove to make sure it doesn't burn.

It is my opinion, and yours might be different, but every storebought ghee that I have bought has been disgusting. Just awful. I've been making my own, it's so easy, and it tastes so much better. I don't know if it's the age, or processing, or the original butter they use, but ugh. Try it. If you like it, it might be a good deal.

Butter is obtained from milk churning process, while ghee is a result of water removal from butter leaving only butter fat.

Butter is usually stored for a short time in the refrigerator in a wrapped package to avoid light and air exposure; ghee can be kept in an air tightly sealed container for an extensive period.

Butter is used in the composition of sauces and pastry creams. Ghee is a specific ingredient in Indian cuisine served with rice, in sweets composition and instead of vegetable oil.
