Produce information

Ghee is a great, shelf-stable alternative to either butter or oil for cooking. It has health benefits which have been recognised by Indian cooks for years where it is used in traditional Indian dishes and even in medicine. When cooking, it can be unhealthy to heat polyunsaturated oils such as vegetable oils to high temperatures, doing so creates peroxides and other free radicals. Ghee, however, has a very high smoke point and doesn't burn easily during cooking. Ghee has stable saturated bonds and so is a lot less likely to form the dangerous free radicals when cooking.
The Ghee is made by melting and simmering our raw butter until all the water evaporates and the milk solids settle at the bottom of the pan. After the Ghee is made it is allowed to settle and cool down naturally at room temperature. When cool, the product has a ‘grainy’ texture which disappears quickly once the product is warmed. Ghee contains both hard and runny parts at room temperature, if you like to use Ghee as a spread it may be a good idea to keep some in the refrigerator for this purpose.
All of our Ghee is made from our own organic raw butter. Each pack of butter is handmade, churning just the cream taken from over 9 pints of organic, raw, whole milk. The milk is from our herd of Holstein Friesian cows that feed on our own organic pasture in the summer months and our own organic silage and bespoke supplement in the winter months.
Ghee may be unfamiliar to many Westerners, but has been used for at least 2,000 years, and comes with a host of benefits listed in traditional Ayurvedic texts, where ghee is seen as a vital food for healthy skin, mental clarity, and good digestion, medicinal and rejuvenating qualities. (Ayurveda is the ancient natural healing system of India.) Ghee is a Sanskrit word for clarified butter.
Ghee is traditionally kept, sometimes for months, without refrigeration. It is best kept in a darkened cupboard. Butter will eventually turn rancid if kept at room temperature, ghee will not. It is the moisture in the butter that promotes decay and as ghee is virtually moisture-free is has no such problem, and will retain its original freshness and flavour for months, even without refrigeration. Ghee is, therefore, a practical way to preserve butter.
As a dairy product, ghee is very low on lactose and generally,
people who have a lactose intolerance can consume a small amount of ghee.
Storage: Ghee will keep for up to 3 months in your kitchen cupboard (away from light, not kept on the worktop) and you can refrigerate it for up to a year. Ghee will become hard in the fridge; however, it will become soft again once you take it out and leave it at room temperature. Do not let any moisture get into your jar, as this can promote bacteria and spoil the ghee so make sure that you use a clean, dry spoon. If you buy a large jar of ghee but don't plan on finishing it in 3 months you may consider transferring some ghee into a small dry sterile glass jar for your kitchen cabinet, and then place the larger jar in the refrigerator.
Most of all enjoy your ghee!
**VERY IMPORTANT** The following ideas are only to be used with RAW MILK that has soured. DO NOT attempt to use soured pasteurized milk – IT IS NOT THE SAME.
  • Soured milk makes the best scones, fruit, plain or cheese. They will be light and fluffy and absolutely delicious.
  • Add it to yeast breads, rolls or sourdoughs for depth of flavour.
  • Make dozens of yummy muffins in a multitude of flavours.
  • Make Cottage Cheese see our website for recipe.
  • Make Courgette or Banana bread.
  • Use it as a base for your smoothies.
  • Makes delicious mouth-watering pancakes and waffles
  • Curds (and Whey) for guidance see our website
  • Use it as the base for a homemade marinade.
  • Use it to make buttermilk biscuits or homemade cookies.
  • Try baking ‘Gemma’s Chocolate Stem Ginger & Milk Skin Mini Loaves’ see our website for the recipe
  • Add it to various nourishing homemade soups.
  • Soak chicken or fish in sour milk to help tenderize the meat.
  • Use it as a substitute for recipes that call for buttermilk, yoghurt, or sour cream.
  • Use to make your own soft cheese, we have recipes on our website for ‘Faye & Paulo’s Fresh Cheese’ and ‘Andy’s Camembert’ all of which are delicious. For instructions see here
  • Feed it to your chickens, pigs, or dogs, it is really good for them too.
  • Dilute it with water and add to your garden, especially tomato plants.
  • Add it to your bath – add some essential oils if you don’t care for the smell, you will feel like Cleopatra!
  • Use to soak grains, particularly Kefir, for instructions go here
