Giveaway: Pure Indian Foods PrimalFat Coconut Ghee [Ended]


Haaaave you met Ghee?

According to the Pure Indian Foods site:

Ghee is a healthy, shelf-stable alternative to plain butter or other cooking oils. Indian ghee is used as an ingredient in traditional dishes, as an ideal fat for frying, and even in Ayurvedic medicine!

Golden colored Ghee is prepared by melting and simmering unsalted butter until all the water evaporates and the milk solids settle at the bottom. The remaining butter oil is very stable, giving it a high smoke point which makes it an excellent choice to use for frying and sautéing and it can be stored without refrigeration for several months. Ghee is also known as Indian Clarified Butter, Seafood Butter, Drawn Butter, Butter Oil, Ghee Butter or Anhydrous Milk Fat (AMF). In India and other South Asian countries, it is also known as Desi Ghee, Pure Ghee, Asli Ghee or Ghritam. Ghee is a dairy product and as such it is gluten-free.

If you've followed me for awhile, you know that I love ghee. After I stopped consuming dairy, my eczema and my acne began to clear up. While now, I do still consume some grass-fed butter, I generally stick to a dairy free diet. Ghee is often used in place of butter for those with a dairy intolerance. You can read more about dairy intolerance and ghee here.

Giveaway! Pure Indian Foods Coconut Ghee


I have started making my own ghee to save money, but I also love to keep a jar on hand when possible. When Pure Indian Foods sent me a jar of their PRIMALFAT Coconut Ghee (and yes that jar above is empty) and a sampler pack of Spiced Ghee, I was so excited to try this new-to-me brand.

I fell in love. Seriously. I bought a jar of their regular Organic Grass-fed Ghee later to try out and there was an obvious difference in taste and color compared to the previous brand I bought. Their PRIMALFAT Coconut Ghee is a 50/50 mixture of coconut oil and ghee, two things that I love. I even decided to make a mayo with this delicious combo of oil and fat. For those of you that don't like cooking with coconut oil because of the taste, this ghee is a great option. The combination of coconut oil and ghee has a great flavor with just a hint of the taste of coconut oil. The addition of ghee to coconut oil increases the smoke point. I've used it for stir-frying, making eggs, and baking chicken. Ghee is also shelf-stable so it won't take up room in your fridge.

As for the spiced ghee, this was something new to me, so I really had fun trying out those. I fried some bananas in the Dessert Ghee, I made a noodle dish using the Italian Ghee, and I put Garlic Ghee on everything. Everything.

I have no doubt that if you try Pure Indian Foods Ghee, you will love it as well. Pure Indian Foods ghee is made from the milk of grass-fed, pastured-raised cows, therefore it is high in fat-soluble vitamins and contains naturally occurring CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid). This stuff tastes good and is good for you. (Still unsure about consuming saturated fats? Read here.) And don't forget -- ghee is typically not an issue for those with sensitivities to dairy. Pure Indian Foods ghee is casein- and lactose-free.

Here are my recipes that use the glorious flavor of ghee:

    Hi Susan, you can use ghee in place of butter or other fats/oils. I use it for sauteing, roasting, etc. I have some recipes linked in the post as well (cauliflower steaks, mayo, zucchini pasta) if you need more ideas. Feel free to ask if you have more questions about what to do with it! :)
