The nutty and warm aromas of Brown Butter makes it my favorite and must-have for all your kitchen and it’s soooooo easy to make it.
What do You Need to Make this Recipe:
You just Need 1 Ingredient to make this recipe and that is ‘Unsalted Butter’
Seriously, can it get even easier than this!!! Absolutely Not and You HAVE to try this ASAP as I guarantee, it will blow your mind.
The Process to Make Brown Butter:
So the recipe is so easy and simple that you just cannot go wrong if you follow these easy steps.
We start by heating a heavy bottom pan or skillet.
Then add unsalted butter (chopped) to the hot pan and reduce the heat to low.
Then begin your 3 minutes ‘rock that arm’ exercise as we need to continuously stir the butter 😉
After the initial 1 minute of stirring the butter, it will begin to bubble/foam and turn light golden.
Keep stirring and soon it will turn slightly orange in color.
After almost 3 minutes (low heat), it will turn brown in color and the foam will subside.
That’s when you turn off the heat and move the pan to a cool place (you don’t want any more heat as it will burn the butter).
Now, you NEED to use a high-quality unsalted butter to have less milk solid/residue upon heating the butter.
If you are using ordinary butter or even salted butter, you will have more residue left after making this recipe and then you’d need to sieve the butter.
How to Store Brown Butter:
This is equally important as if you don’t store the butter properly or use dirty/wet spoons to remove butter, it will get spoiled easily.
- You NEED to have a sterilized glass jar with a lid.
- I prefer to use a microwaveable jar/bottles, as you can heat the solidifies brown butter in the microwave later.
- Once stored in a glass jar, you can keep it outside for a few days but I’d suggest to store it in the fridge for a longer duration.
- Yes, Brown Butter Solidifies in cold temperature and you can lightly heat before use.
I hope this Holiday Season, you try this easy recipe to make your own Brown Butter at home and add in your favorite recipes.
I guarantee you’d be blown away from the flavor profile.
