Instructions

TO MAKE BROWN BUTTER

HEAT a heavy bottomed small sauce pan.

PLACE butter into the pan and cook over low-medium heat. Using a heat proof spatula or wooden spoon, stir frequently and do not walk away from it. The butter will bubble and boil. Once it stops bubbling so quickly, begin to stir the liquid more frequently, being sure to scrape the bottom of the pan. The milk solids on the bottom of the pan will start to turn brown. Once they reach a similar color to an almond skin, remove the pan from the heat. This process will take approximately 5-7 minutes.

TRANSFER the butter to a heat proof bowl and refrigerate until the butter turns back to a solid state.

Take caution when handling this mixture, as it is very hot.
