Benefits of Cooking with Ghee
Once you start using the best ghee in your cooking, we think you’ll be hooked. Ghee is a shelf-stable cooking fat with a high smoke point, making it ideal for a wide variety of uses in the kitchen. Made from butter, ghee has much of butter’s rich flavor. We make our ghee by simmering pots of the best local butter until the milk solids separate from the fat and begin to caramelize. At this point, the milk solids are strained and removed, leaving only pure butterfat and a lightly caramelized flavor behind. Ghee is free of lactose and casein, making it safe for most people with dairy intolerances to consume. Try it in our recipe for Savory Lentil Soup, below. We think you’ll enjoy how easy and delicious it is to cook with!

In 2012, Full Moon Ghee founder Hannah Jacobson-Hardy tasted ghee for the first time while studying yoga and Ayurvedic medicine. Two years later, Full Moon Ghee was born! After starting out producing Original ghee, more recently we began infusing our ghee with herbs, spices, cacao, and local maple cream.
