How to easily brown butter, step-by-step to add a depth of nuttiness and complex flavors to your baked goods. This recipe makes about 9 oz of brown butter.
Cut butter into squares and place into a stainless steel saucepan and melt on medium heat.
Whisk gently. Butter will foam up.
You will begin to see the butter turning a yellow/brown color after a few minutes. Keep whisking.
Once it's a toasty brown (not black) and you can smell a nutty aroma, it's done.
Remove butter from heat and place in a heat-proof container to cool.
Butter can be stored at room temperature for up to 5 days or in the fridge for 2 weeks.
