I've provided step-by-step instructions, complete with pictures, on how to easily clarify butter at home. This is definitely a recipe you want to keep on hand!
Place butter in a small saucepan. Heat the butter over low heat, allowing the butter to melt and come to a simmer. Don’t stir, just let it melt.
Carefully skim the surface with a spoon (I use a soup spoon) and get rid of all – or most- of the white, foamy dairy solids.
Strain the remaining butter through a cheesecloth. I recommend at least 5 layers of cheesecloth to get rid of all of the dairy solids.
Discard the cheesecloth and milk solids. Let the butter cool to room temperature.
Store the clarified butter in a covered glass container. You can store the cooled butter at room temperature for up to three months, or refrigerate up to six months.
