Get Lost in the Secret Garden....
Is there anything more intoxicating than the fragrance of the morning dew lingering in the garden? The plants are full of life force and offering us their knowledge. So many of these plants and fungi, although used mainly used for culinary purposes, contain so much magic and healing benefits.
Our Secret Garden blend provides the freshness and savory flavor that accompany our favorite dishes so well but keeps that magic alive.
Rosemary, Maitake Mushroom, Sage, Thyme, Garlic, Onion, Celtic Sea Salt and a sprinkle of our “secret ingredient” Ceylon Cinnamon create a cohesive succulent experience for the taste buds.
We are very familiar with Rosemary, Thyme and Sage (from the folk song) but what are they actually benefiting? Rosemary is not only a carminative (aids in digestion) but it also stimulates the mind and memory function. Thyme is a natural anti-bacterial and anti-viral among many other actions which is used as a tea in Northern parts of Europe. Sage has a cooling, soothing quality used for inflammation, sore throats, toothaches and much more. The Maitake mushroom from Japan is commonly used as a culinary fungi but is now being seen for its medicinal properties as well. It is used to stabilize immune function, lower blood pressure and balance blood sugar.
Here at Goddess Ghee some of our brightest, most nourishing creations start with this base, an empty canvas awaiting cookery exploration. This blend is perfect for cooking, sautéing, or roasting practically anything. Just place a spoonful into a hot skillet or rub over roasted meats, vegetables or mushrooms. It will fill your kitchen with complete bliss and the most uplifting aromas.
Easy to use & overflowing with flavor, we’ve enjoyed using the Secret Garden by:
Coating potatoes and roasting them in the oven (think hasselback herbed sweet potatoes, potatoes or turnips)
Slather it on meat for the perfect sear - ghee has a smoke point of 450 degrees & won’t burn like most other oils during the searing process.
Sauteing fresh scallops, shrimp or searing salmon.
Frying eggs is elevated to artistic expression
Add a spoonful to make anything savory just a bit better
Spread on toasts (grilled cheese) or bagels
Gently heat in a cast iron to just melt it then pour over a salad (this is my go to)
