Okay, I just need to get this out there first: this photo is totally killing me. There is something Hitchcockian about that shadow in the upper right corner that feels a little ominous. And the hard light, color of the ghee, and the slightly grainy quality of the image reminds me of those gross-looking old 1970s cookbooks. It's like a film noire movie and my parents' old cookbooks had a bastard child! The color in all of these photos is a bit wonky, but that's what I get for taking photos in my dimly lit apartment at night. I should know better. Moving on.
Last year I saw that Pure Indian Foods, makers of a wonderful grass-fed, organic ghee, make a variety of herbal and spice infused ghees. I was in Portland at a food co-op, and wanted to buy one of each variety. Knowing I had limited suitcase space, I didn't purchase any of them, and decided I needed to try making my own. Well, one thing led to another, life happened, yadda yadda yadda, and I just never got around to making a batch. But those ghees have been dancing around in the back of my mind like little sugarplums dancing around on the night before Christmas.
