Bee Ghee - 140g Jar
Our cultured butter is turned into the 'oil of butter' - ghee. For our Bee Ghee, our ghee is infused with NZ Manuka honey for a different taste or experience. This product was a finalist in the Cuisine Artisan of the Year section in the 2019 NZ Food awards.
Ghee is clarified butter taken a step further which enhances the flavours and makes it more like the traditional ghee made for thousands of years. Like all our other products we want to honour the product to be the very best it can be (which is why we make it with cultured butter rather than sweet cream butter) and to be as traditional as we can within the requirements of a modern legislation. Our ghee is in a glass jar which of course is good for the environment but also for the ghee because that means there is no plastic leeching into the ghee.
Our ghee has a nutty almost caramel tone to it, the texture is almost grainy which our research shows is a sign of a great ghee.
Most commonly know for Indian cooking, ghee is much more than that! Ghee is used as a carrier within Ayurvedic medicine so add some to your smoothies to help with the absorption of the nutrients. Or maybe melt some and try it drizzled over warm popcorn!!
Because we use Cultured Butter, which is low in lactose due to the fermentation process, ghee has had the remaining lactose left in the butter removed as well as most of the milk proteins, so our Bee Ghee makes an ideal spread alternative for people with lactose issues and milk allergies - we always recommend caution for those with allergies and care must be taken when trying!
