Clarified Butter

  • yield: Makes about 1 cup


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter

Cook's Note

Clarified butter may be stored, refrigerated in an airtight container, for up to 1 month.


  1. Step 1

    In a small saucepan, bring butter to a boil over medium-low heat. Continue to cook until the butter becomes foamy. Remove from heat, and transfer to a small bowl. Let cool. Skim the foam from the surface and discard. Pour off the clear liquid, leaving any remaining solids in the bowl.
