Hi guys

Just wondering what the butter ghee tastes like? Is it anything like regular butter/spread, can it be sweetened up if not?

I'm really looking forward to using it in baking, does it add that crunch that we've been missing from things like biscuits and cookies??

Hi, Ash, actually it's a lot stronger than butter. I'm afraid it's better for frying and cooking foods than for speading. But if you need a 'buttery' taste in a food you're preparing, it should do the job. And no reason that a bit of Truvia or Stevia couldn't be used.

I love butter, and I always thought ghee would be gross, maybe because of the name. ("Ghee" just doesn't sound appetizing.) But now I can't believe I went so long without the stuff! I actually find it a bit sweeter than butter, more like a European or unsalted butter than regular butter. The main difference is in the presentation. Because the cream has been removed, it is not as spreadable as butter. But it is delicious! Purity Farms (other brands are available) is a great tasting one at a pretty good price.

I'm not back to baking yet, so I don't know for sure, but because it is solid at room temp, I have to think it would be great in any baking recipe that calls for cold butter, like biscuits, shortbread, or crusts.

I'm not Raster, but, Truvia is derived from the stevia plant. Just like Stevia, some people have a problem with Trivia, some don't.
