Okay, so I would like to make some ghee--I even have some lovely unsalted butter waiting in the fridge.
I've read about how to make it and what some of its benefits are.

But I still have some questions. First, I understand that it keeps longer than regular butter, has little/no milk solids, has a higher smoke point, and all that. But are there any other nutritional advantages to ghee, above regular butter? And would you mamas mind sharing your favorite ways to cook with ghee? Obviously it's great in traditional Indian recipes, but what are some other great ways to use it?

Thank you so much!

I don't know much about health benefits other than that people with dairy sensitivities are thought to be able to enjoy ghee because it doesn't contain the milk solids.

I use ghee in place of butter all the time--especially for sauteeing or other high heat treatments. My favorite combo is to sautee vegetables in ghee and then braise in bone broth. Yummmy!
