Are you looking for a butter substitute or a healthier, more-flavorful cooking oil? Are you wondering: What does ghee taste like? Discover the flavors of ghee here
For those who have never experienced it, it is common to ask: “What does ghee taste like?” Those who ask are often looking for an alternative to using butter or canola oil for health reasons. Others may have children who do not like the taste of coconut oil used in cooking, or some have had too many experiences of burning the extra virgin olive oil while preparing a meal.
Full Moon Ghee has a buttery, slightly sweet flavor. It is a great substitute for butter in most dishes, and an easy-to-use oil with a smoke point of 485°F — which is higher than many other popular cooking oils, like extra virgin olive oil, canola oil, coconut oil, and palm oil.
Ghee is clarified butter, which is where that buttery flavor comes from. However, the milk solids are removed from ghee, making it easier to digest for people who suffer from dairy allergies, as well as protective to the digestive system because of ghee’s constituents.
Full Moon Ghee also offers an array of specialty ghee products with delectable flavors, ranging from savory to sweet, including:
- Rosemary Garlic Ghee
- Turmeric Spiced Ghee
- Chocolate Ghee
Here is a look at each of these flavored ghee options so you can decide which flavors and taste you want to highlight in your meals with. You should also check out our online store to buy the original Full Moon Ghee to taste it for yourself!
Rosemary Garlic Ghee
This flavored option from Full Moon Ghee is an artisanal, small-batch ghee infused with locally-sourced rosemary and garlic from Western Massachusetts.
Rosemary has a complex flavor — it is a combination of piney and slightly minty, with peppery, sage-like notes. Rosemary has a sharp, brightening quality to it. The flavor can be overwhelming if used too much in culinary dishes. The Rosemary Garlic Ghee from Full Moon Ghee has been blended to perfection, allowing for just the right amount of flavor to come through. The garlic adds a touch of pungency and spiciness that helps to balance this savory ghee option.
The Rosemary Garlic Ghee is great on bread or toast. We also recommend heating it up and drizzling it over potatoes, rice, or quinoa. One delicious and diverse recipe that goes great with this flavored ghee is a roasted vegetable salad.
You can also use the Rosemary Garlic Ghee as a cooking oil for vegetables and meat to add a burst of rosemary and garlic flavor to the meal.
Turmeric Spiced Ghee
Golden Turmeric Ghee is infused with organic turmeric, ginger and ashwagandha, locally-sourced in Western Massachusetts. These herbs have been used to promote digestive power, the assimilation of nutrients, and possess both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant potential.
Turmeric Spiced Ghee goes wonderfully as an ingredient in golden milk. Also try this warming flavored ghee on curries, rice dishes, roasted vegetables, in oatmeal, or simply spread onto toast.
This decadent antioxidant-filled dessert ghee combines organic and fair trade cacao with local honey and our original Full Moon Ghee. It is the perfect option for making a maca cacao hot chocolate with superfood ingredients. It also goes great on fresh fruit or toast.
Not only is the Chocolate Ghee a tasty treat, it’s also filled with vitamins, minerals, and iron. It’s a great way to add some sweet tastes and clean energy to your day while doing it healthfully. Get your jar of Chocolate Ghee now! (Temporarily out of stock until mid-March)
