What Is Clarified Butter and How Can I Make It?
Clarified or drawn butter is clear, melted butter separated from its
milk solids and water. To clarify, melt butter in a heavy saucepan
over medium heat. Remove white froth as it forms on top. When the
milk solids separate and settle at the bottom of the pan, carefully
pour off the clear, yellow butter and discard the milk solids.
Compared to regular butter, clarified butter can be heated to
a higher temperature without burning and can be stored longer.
