How to make Clarified Butter
What is clarified butter? It’s whole butter thats heated to remove the water and milk solids. When you remove the milk solids from butter, it raises the smoking point of the butter making it easier to cook with.
Add your butter to a quality heavy gauge cooking pot. Start heating the butter over medium heat until its completely melted then lower the heat to avoid burning it. Simmer the butter for approxiamately 10 – 15 minutes for the clarification process to complete. When you can see through the butter to the bottom of the pot its done.
Remove your pot from the burner and place on a hot mat or towel. You will need to strain your butter through some cheesecloth by pouring or using a ladle.
Clarified butter is great for dipping lobster or cooking, pan frying, and sauteeing.
