Ghee can turn a so-so relationship into a fabulous union. Mushrooms are a good example. Cooked in flavorless oil, they are so-so, but cooked in flavorful ghee, either plain or spiced, mushrooms take on a dimension of exquisite flavor that oil simply cannot match.
To be at their tastiest, sauté mushrooms over very high heat. This quickly removes their moisture, allowing the mushrooms to brown, releasing their full aroma, and enhancing that earthy, meaty flavor and texture that only a mushroom can claim. But many cooking oils are flavorless, and some are damaged by high heat. Even quality olive oil has a low flash point, meaning its best not heated to a high temperature. Butter provides flavor, but burns at high temperatures. Ghee is perfect for high-heat cooking. It won’t burn and the flavor is out-of-this-world delicious! We think when you try our mushroom recipes, you’ll agree: Ghee and mushrooms make a marvelous partnership.
