Ghee Butter // 4th & Heart // Los Angeles, CA
Started by a pair of business-savvy LA yogis (are there any other kind in LA?), 4th and Heart brings ancient health wisdom to the modern cupboard. And we do mean cupboard — ghee doesn’t need a fridge. That’s because while your stick of Land-o-Lakes is watered down with thickeners, perishable milk solids, and, well, water, ghee is just plain old butter fat: raw, clean, and vitamin-rich, an undiluted, unprocessed source of good nutrition from grass-fed cows. So flavorful, you can’t believe it is butter. Ghee holds up to high-heat cooking, so use liberally with roasted veggies, like a sweet-tart earthy blend of carrots, lemons, and spices.
