Hummingbird is very excited to offer shelf stable, Organic Ghee made in Portland, Oregon by Ahara Rasa. Ghee is ultra-clarified butter that is slowly cooked over open flame before carefully straining out the solids, leaving it 99.9% lactose and casein free. Mantra is chanted and played during the process to keep the ghee energetically pure.

A delicious desert ghee or addition to your coffee. Ahara Rasa slow cooks whole ground vanilla bean to create a luscious and aromatic oil. Grease your muffin tins with it, substitute it for vegetable oil in baking recipes, fry bananas, or dollop on your yams for a sensual and fun treat.

Organic Ghee has high levels of CLA's (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) and is rich in the oil soluble vitamins A and E.

Ahara Rasa is 100% committed to real, organic and sustainable practices. They receive their vat-cultured butter from a creamery in California that grass feed and raise their cows on open pasture most of the year.

From Ahara Rasa: "'Ahara Rasa' (Ah-hah-rah Ruh-Sah) means 'the essence of food' in Sanskrit. It is the end product of good digestion and the subtle energy derived from your food, rather than the mass itself. Ahara Rasa Ghee is committed to the traditional process of ghee outlined in the Charak Samhita ( the ancient text of Ayurvedic Medicine). This process specifies that ghee should be made from Makhan (cultured butter) where the cream is first turned to yogurt before being churned into butter. ARG also makes the ghee in small batches, over open flame rather than in large steam kettles like much of the other ghee on the market. Mantra is chanted and played during the entire process of ghee making to insure a saatvic (peaceful) and energetically healthy product. We are confident that these fastidious and specific rules by which we create our ghee make for a better tasting, healthier and more medicinally viable ghee that you will feel in every cell and be proud to feed your family. Thank you for supporting artisan food!"
