Its use is universal; greasing, baking, frying, roasting, mixing it with dough, used as a spread, a side dish, for body care and much more. When used daily it helps to maintain well-being. Called‘žonta’ or cooked/refined butter, it was known to our great-great grandmothers and was celebrated throughout the territory of present Slovenia long before cooling devices came into existence. While people were pondering on how to preserve the best (the essence) of what milk gives us, the imperishable gi was made over fire.
The women of the village would each cook some, gather it for a while and then jointly present it as a present to the young mother. It would invigorate her and she would thus have better milk for her newly born child. In the countryside it was used to treat joints, frostbite, dry skin, inflamed infant anus, chapped lips, as well as for crème production and as eye-drops for better eyesight (quality test). Farmers used Ghee only during festivities. On market stalls, however, it was the most popular and the most expensive food, and the first to be sold out already in early mornings. Ghee is an excellent source of butyric and caprylic acid and was thus traditionally used as a preventive measure and for intestinal problems.
