Organic Valley Ghee is a clarified butter with a rich yellow color hints of nutty, caramel flavors. Ghee has been a staple in many culinary traditionals around the world for centuries. Today it's prized for its rich buttery taste, enticing aroma, and its high-smoke point, which makes it ideal for high-heat cooking. Ghee is a lactose-free, casein-free and shelf-stable product. Even after opening, you don't have to refrigerate ghee. If your kitchen is particularly warm, you may want to refrigerate it to keep it from softening, but it's not necessary.
