Do I have to refrigerate the Ghee after I have opened the jar?
No. If it is summertime or otherwise very warm in your kitchen, you may want to keep the Ghee in the refrigerator - (it thaws very quickly when you take it out of the fridge.) - but you don't have to. Keep the cap on when not in use, and always dip into the Ghee with a clean utensil. Otherwise, a harmless mold could eventually grow in the Ghee.
Sometimes, the Ghee is lighter in color than other times. Why is that?
We use no colorings in our Ghee, and the slight differences in color are due to seasonal changes. Ghee made in the summer tends to be more "yellow" because the cows are grazing longer hours and have more chlorophyll in their systems.
Why is it that butter goes rancid and Ghee doesn't?
Butter is over 16% water and contains milk fat solids that can spoil. We cook out the water and remove the milk solids, so Ghee has a long shelf life.
What is pasture-raised?
Pasture Raised with Love! In a way cows are like kids – the more time outside the better. Our farmers send their cows out into lush, organic pastures for fresh air, exercise and grazing (weather permitting of course). Our Pasture-Raised™ animals receive the majority of their nutrition from organically managed pastures and stored dried grasses/forages. To ensure they get the complete nutrition they need, our cows may also be fed supplemental organic grains, both during the grazing season and into winter months.
Supplemental organic grains can include any of the following: corn, soy, oats, barley, triticale and other small grains. Animals also receive necessary mineral supplements that sometimes include non-iodized salt.
