Clarified butter

Clarified butter

This is a way of melting butter to eliminate all the impurities.

The clarified butter can then be heated without spoiling, and is more digestible.

It is ideal for cooking at high temperatures where small black specks would spoil the appearance, or for emulsified sauces like béarnaise or mousseline.
