How to prevent butter burning during cooking


How to prevent butter burning during cooking
Butter, which is excellent for fixing flavours in a recipe, burns if the temperature is too high. It darkens and produces unpleasant small black specks (by the way, note that the famous recipe "raie au beurre noir", ray in black butter, is a kind of sacrilege!).

To avoid this, you can add a little oil to the butter which allows you to raise the temperature further. But this is not always an appropriate method as sometimes it's not desirable to use oil (for a dessert for exemple).

It's well worth making clarified butter.
