Brown Butter Recipe

Preparation

  3. As the butter melts, it will begin to foam.
  4. The color will progress from lemony-yellow to golden-tan to, finally, a toasty-brown.
  5. Once you smell that nutty aroma, take the pan off the heat and transfer the browned butter into a heat-proof bowl to cool.
  6. The milk solids will cook faster and you'll see them settle on the bottom of the pan like the dregs in a bottle of wine. When you transfer the brown butter to a new container, try to leave as much of this sediment in the pan as possible.
