Make Your Own Ghee
Ghee (clarified butter) is a high heat, lactose-free cooking oil used for centuries to relieve digestive disorders, calm the nervous system, and promote overall vitality. Join NOFA/Mass for this hands on experience with our guide Hannah Jacobson-Hardy, founder of Full Moon Ghee. Hannah is a proponent for keeping healthy fats in our diets. She explains, They are good for the brain and large intestine. They lubricate the joints. Ghee is cooling in the body and can help to heal heat conditions like ulcers and colitis. Good fats also help you absorb nutrients. We have a lot more cows than coconuts here, therefore ghee can be our local cooking oil of New England. After we transform butter into ghee, we'll take it one step further by infusing it with herbs and spices to make herbal ghee. Handouts, recipes, and taste tests provided! Each participant takes home a jar of what we make in class. Check out this great profile and recipe from Hannah Jacobson-Hardy in NOFA/Masss Organic Food Guide.
