How to Clarify Butter

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

  • A small saucepan
  • Butter

WHAT TO DO

  • Melt the butter in the saucepan over medium-low heat
  • When you see foam, turn the heat to low
  • Let the butter simmer while the water evaporates and the milk solids separate; to make ghee, allow the milk solids to caramelize slightly before removing from the heat, which creates a nutty flavor
  • Strain the liquid through a cheesecloth-lined mesh strainer, discarding the milk solids
