A type of clarified butter, ghee was likely created as a way to preserve butter by removing its water content. Ghee gets its signature nutty flavor from simmering the butter until its milk solids are golden brown, then straining the butter to remove the solids. Use any remaining herbed ghee on other favorite meats or vegetables.
