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.
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!
