How do you make brown butter?

Trackback |      [pinit]

Browned butter (aka Beurre Noisette) has a delicious nutty, rich flavor.  It’s really easy to make at home and can be added to recipes or used as a sauce.  It’s a great accompaniment to pasta and fresh herbs (especially sage).

How to Make Brown Butter
1. Melt unsalted butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat.

2. Continue cooking until you start to see brown specks in the butter (the butter solids toasting) and it emits a nutty aroma.

3. Use in your recipe.

Note: if you over-brown the butter solids (i.e. they start to turn black) they will be unpalatably bitter, so you should start over with new butter in a clean pan.
