Have you ever had an epiphany that left you wanting to share it with the whole planet; to shout from the highest mountain or maybe click Share with the World on Facebook (if that option existed)? I have; in the form of an edible epiphany...crispy fried onions.
There are lots of things that you can use matcha in--lattes, smoothies, Popsicles, salads, soups, curries, and of course, tea. In my mind it is similar to ground flax; in that you can add it to a lot of your current recipes for an added nutritional boost. But sometimes, it is also good in something a little more decedent. And that's where today's recipe begins...Matcha Drops.
I would like to introduce you to one of my absolute favorite fats in the world: ghee. Actually, it IS my favorite now that I think about it. But not just any ghee. My personal favorite is Ancient Organics Ghee. I happen to cook my fair share of Indian food and many recipes call for using ghee, so I have tried a few brands over the years, but Ancient Organics has perfected the making of this liquid gold. From the moment you open the jar as the intoxicating caramel scent waifs towards you, you know this is the good stuff. It is rich, almost decadent.
