How To Clarify Butter

Clarified butter is the result of milk fats being separated from butterfat through heating and melting. Clarified butter can be used to sauté vegetables, scramble eggs, dip with seafood, and more! Learn how to make it.

Get Started

Step 1:

Melt unsalted butter over low heat. Make sure to not boil the butter.

Step 2:

Heat until the milk solids separate.

Step 3:

Gently skim away foamy milk solids using a slotted spoon.
