Is non grass-fed ghee better tasting?

Asked by lucillelucillelucille (32415points) 1 month ago

My husband picked up some grass-fed ghee for me and it tastes like the underside of a lawnmower.
Is regular ghee just as revolting?
What do you use it for?

It’s used in Indian cooking. I don’t think you’re supposed to taste it raw; it’s basically clarified butter. I doubt the difference when cooking with it would be perceptible.

If you melt it, soften it, add some whey, you can use it as a spread.

It comes in jars and is known as Ghee Whiz.

@janbb- Yes, I knew that and still tasted grass.
@elbanditoroso – I might have to check that out.

@lucillelucillelucille Now my mental image is sticks of butter grazing in a field before being clarified in a pan!

@janbb -Grazing on a just mowed field as you want that grass fed taste!

Wendy’s used to try to be chic and put some sort of special lettuce on their stuff. It tasted like grass and dirt.

@lucillelucillelucille OMG, now I just have to ask…HOW do you know what the grass from the bottom of a lawn mower taste like???

You can clarify your own butter. It’s really good on lobster or crab meat!!!

What the hell is ghee? Alright, alright. I’m googling.

@Dutchess_III Ghee is what the tigers turned into when they circled the tree that Sambo sat in.

They should be able to keep the ghee from eating the grass in stomach churners like the Sambo tale.

My thoughts exactly @Pinguidchance!
