Ghee Included in Article About the Best Oils For Deep Frying

Michael Joseph's article, What is the Best Oil For Deep Frying?, includes his list of the top five healthiest oils for deep frying - one of which can be found at the Mill City Farmers Market - ghee! 

Per Michael, "While butter may not be the best oil for deep frying, ghee is a very solid option. Ghee is a clarified butter, which means that the dairy proteins and sugars (lactose) have been removed. This makes ghee a pure fat; it has much higher resistance to burning than butter, and it’s heat stable at higher temperatures."

At the MCFM, you'll find ghee at Gorkha Palace's MoMo stand. It has been used in a number of cooking demos at the Market.
