Smen is a kind of preserved aged butter used in Arab and
Maghreb cooking. It is described as the most popular
cooking butter in Morocco and the Middle East,
it's similar to Eastern Ghee,
it's left to ferment in a cool dry place.
With its deep, pungent aroma and distinctive flavor,
it enhances many of Morocco's savory dishes,
especially couscous and tagines.
