Why ghee? Well, for starters, more people than ever are discovering lactose sensitivities and have been cutting dairy out of their diet. But butter! Ghee is butter, without the milk solids and water — it's concentrated, richly flavored, and has no lactose or dairy. Essentially, it's butter-flavored coconut oil, and you're going to want to cook with it, bake with it, and put it on your food all year long.
