Ghee vs Coconut oil and Sept 21st at the Cygnet Market

Ghee vs Coconut Oil

There is a worldwide craze for coconut oil especially for use in hot cooking, such as stir frying. For several reasons I recommend using ghee instead.

I now have Pepe Saya’s ghee, from NSW 

We all want to do what is right for our body and for our family’s’ health. As people learn more about the effects of high heat on cooking oils, they naturally seek better alternatives and the coconut oil craze has actually caused a world shortage!

I only have 10 jars, so be quick!

Ghee has been used for thousands of years in India and neighbouring countries where cows are plentiful. Ayurvedic cooking has always recommended ghee for its high nutritional content, very high smoke point, ease of use even for lactose intolerant people and its beautiful flavour. Not requiring refrigeration is another benefit.

Pepe's ghee

From the Pepe Saya website….Ghee, is clarified butter, which has been simmered until the milk solids separate, it is then caramelised over a low heat, the liquid gold which remains is passed through a muslin cloth to remove any impurities, bottled and there you have it, Ghee glorious Ghee.

Ghee is a favourite of those with intolerances to lactose or casein as it contains less than 1% of either of those potentially inflammatory substances, it has numerous holistic applications, can be stored without refrigeration for long periods of time, and is excellent for cooking with its high smoke point of 230c.

Pepe Saya Ghee is derived from our unsalted cultured butter, of course, and the finished product produces an extra special nutty flavour.

AND it is made in Australia, so it is also good for lower food miles, for Australian farmers and businesses and reducing the carbon footprint our government refuses to acknowledge!

Pepe Saya was on Landline recently, under the heading “Australia’s Best Butter”

Left handed gardeners

The razor hoe I sell, which is made in England and is a superb quality little hand tool, is now available for left handers. What a great gift idea for gardeners!

Time to Sow Summer Veg

My seed racks are bursting with new season’s seeds for your garden. I have one remaining heated cable to ensure germination. Ask me about it at the market.

Many people have asked me for bean seeds and now I have them. Although I would not sow them in Cygnet yet, where there is still a chance of frost, it is a good idea to get your favourites while you can!

Ho Mi and Razor Hoe

The Korean ho mi has been in existence for thousands of years. It is hand forged from high grade steel and will never rust. I have had mine for about 15 years and give it a heavy duty workout all the time without there having been any deterioration in its shape or strength or sharpness!

The Razor Hoe is made from hardened Japanese steel and can be honed to be as sharp as a razor. It will hold that sharpness for a long time and is perfect for cutting weeds at the soil level and other jobs in areas where the ho mi is too big. Available in left and right hand models.
