Clarified butter comes up often in French cooking. Fortunately, it is easy to make and stores for ages.

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces butter

Directions

  • Place three sticks of butter (~12 ounces) in a pot, over low-medium heat. Note: If you don’t use enough heat, the water will not bubble away as seen in the video below; however, too much heat will brown the butter.
  • Allow the butter to melt completely. Use a skimmer to skim off the fat on the surface of the melted butter.
  • Remove pot from stove and tilt at 45 degree angle. Scoop as much of the clear butter as you can without also scooping the fats at the bottom.

Notes

  • Storage: You can store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator almost indefinitely. But plan on using it within the next few months.
