|Deborah Porteous from London asks:
“Can ghee be used to replace butter as a spread on bread, sandwiches and toast?
“It can indeed. It is, in fact, recommended by Ayurveda. However, it is not to my taste (spread on bread) since I prefer butter. But you can slowly distill spices in it by adding teaspoonfuls and heating the ghee ever so slowly for long periods on very low temperatures and infusing it with delightful flavours such as ginger, cumin, chili, etc. Or you can obtain some first-class ghee (or make your own) and just spread it, as you suggest.
