We make clarified butter to remove the milk solids, which are what burn when cooking with high heat. Keep a jar in the fridge to use for pan frying, or to drizzle over veggies, rice and, of course, seafood! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cubed

Directions

In a small heavy saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Simmer until solids separate from fat, about 10 minutes, but do not allow butter to brown. Remove from heat; skim and discard surface foam.
Slowly pour clear yellow liquid through a fine-mesh strainer into a bowl. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three months or in the freezer for up to six months. Yield: 3/4 cup.
Editor's Note: If you don't have a fine mesh-strainer, butter can be strained through any strainer lined with cheesecloth.
