Clarified butter keeps longer than regular butter and is wonderful to
use when frying hash browns and pancakes because it will not get that burnt black look. Try it with lobster, or in garlic biscuits and shrimp scampi - it is wonderful.
How to Clarify Butter
If you really want to impress family or friends serving lobster or
shrimp, make homemade butter (see link below), and then clarify it.
They will think they died and went to heaven.
Cut the unsalted butter into chunks and place in a small saucepan on low
heat. As the butter melts white foam will float on the top. Just use a
spoon and skim this off. What we keep is the clear yellow butter below
Remove from heat and cool slightly. Pour through a fine sieve
into a glass jar. The milky residue stays in the bottom of the pan.
Do NOT keep this or pour it into your glass jar.
You can store the butter in the refrigerator for 14 days or
freeze it for 2 months. Two pounds of regular butter = 3 cups of
clarified butter. Only use unsalted butter.
