In Ayurveda, ghee is considered the healthiest and primary fat. Because of the way it is prepared, ghee contains little to none of the lactose of butter, making it more tolerable for those on a dairy-free diet. Ghee has a very high smoke point and is a rich source of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Use ghee anytime you would use butter, or as a replacement for cooking oil. Use glass jars that are room temperature or slightly warmed to prevent them from cracking when you pour in the hot ghee.
