Ghee (Indian Clarified Butter)
Ever seen gallon-sized containers of ghee before? I didn't either until I went to Little India in Artesia.
In case you didn't know, according to Wikipedia, ghee is made by simmering unsalted butter until the water has boiled off and the proteins have settled to the bottom. The clarified butter can then be stored for long periods of time without refrigeration, which makes it very important to Indian, Egyptian, and Ethiopian cuisines.
