Organic Valley - Purity Farms Organic Ghee Clarified Butter - 13 oz. (368g)
Organic Valley Purity Farms Organic Ghee Clarified Butter is a delightful, semi-soft cooking oil from nature's kitchen -- great for cooking, baking, or sautéing. Purity Farms has been making ghee from Organic Valley butter for years, and when the original owners were looking to retire, they turned to Purity Farms to keep the ghee flowing.
Honoring a traditional Indian method, pure Organic Valley butter from Purity Farms' pasture-raised cows is slowly cooked to coax out the water and milk solids. What remains is delicious ghee with a rich, buttery taste and aroma.
Organic Valley Purity Farms Organic Ghee Clarified Butter is perfect for high-temperature cooking, like sautéing, and is a mainstay of many culinary traditions around the world. Ghee may be used instead of butter in baking; however, keep in mind ghee's lower moisture content when mixing ingredients. Like you, Purity Farms cares about how food is raised, how it tastes and how healthy it is for all living things.

Do I have to refrigerate the Ghee after I have opened the jar?
No. If it is summertime or otherwise very warm in your kitchen, you may want to keep the Ghee in the refrigerator, (it thaws very quickly when you take it out of the fridge) but you don't have to. Keep the cap on when not in use, and always dip into the Ghee with a clean utensil. Otherwise, a harmless mold could eventually grow in the Ghee.
Sometimes, the Ghee is lighter in color than other times. Why is that?
Purity Farms uses no colorings in their Ghee, and the slight differences in color are due to seasonal changes. Ghee made in the summer tends to be more "yellow" because the cows are grazing longer hours and have more chlorophyll in their systems.
Why is it that butter goes rancid and Ghee doesn't?
Butter is over 16% water and contains milk fat solids that can spoil. Purity Farms cooks out the water and remove the milk solids, so Ghee has a long shelf life.
What is pasture-raised?
Pasture-Raised with Love! In a way cows are like kids – the more time outside the better. Purity Farms' farmers send their cows out into lush, organic pastures for fresh air, exercise and grazing (weather permitting of course). Their Pasture-Raised with Love animals receive the majority of their nutrition from organically managed pastures and stored dried grasses/forages. To ensure they get the complete nutrition they need, Purity Farms' cows may also be fed supplemental organic grains, both during the grazing season and into winter months.
Supplemental organic grains can include any of the following: corn, soy, oats, barley, triticale and other small grains. Animals also receive necessary mineral supplements that sometimes include non-iodized salt.
