A refreshing change-up to lemon curd comes from local ghee producer Mixte Cuisine. We’re swiping this light, uber-smooth clarified butter on lemon poppy seed muffins, cranberry scones and other baked goods. Sold in 8-ounce jars, this flavored ghee also brightens steamed vegetables, roast chicken and anything else that loves a squeeze of citrus. $10, Available at the Brookhaven Farmers Market, Decatur Farmers Market or online at
