Make your own. Heat butter till it is all liquid and the salt and whey will go to the bottom of your glass measuring cup. Then pour off the clarified butter now you have Gee.

Dave gave you excellent advice. You can also buy it online here.

I feel sure there are other sources out there too - I simply did a Google search as I wasn't sure.

larger cities will have Indian or Asian markets that will carry it, but your average supermarket will not. It is easy to make yourself.

I have seen it in specialty markets like Trader Joes or Whole Foods. I do not remember if either of those two stores does carry it, but I know I have seen it in either those stores or similar stores.

I made it just recently, pretty much like that, except I poured it through a strainer lined with cheesecloth, to remove the solids that floated on top.

I made some Egyptian dishes with it......it's really very high in saturated fats for those of you on high cholesterol medicines but it does have a very good taste

Although I've never bought it, Whole Foods definitely does carry it (at least the ones here in Virginia). If you have any upscale supermarkets local to you, or ones with a large ethnic clientele, chances are good they might have it. It's usually found in the Asian/Indian section or in the dairy section. I've found it in both places at the Whole Foods stores here.
