  1. A COUPLE OF SUGGESTIONSMake the clarified butter recipe is easy but requires correct temperatures. To control the process, and obtain a perfect result I strongly suggest to use a thermometer and a thick-bottomed heavy pot.Considering this kind of butter can be stored for weeks in the fridge, and for months in the freezer, I suggest to prepare a significant quantity and divide into a few jars or boxes.
  2. THE BEST WAY TO MAKE CLARIFIED BUTTER RECIPEPour the butter into a thick-bottomed heavy pot, then place over medium-low heat. Melt the butter and set the kitchen thermometer. Now, adjust the flame in order to reach 212°F (100° C). At this time, the water inside the butter starts to evaporate creating a white foam on the surface.When the foam is dense, discard it with a slotted spoon. Remove the foam every time it regenerates.When the water is almost completely evaporated, the temperature of the butter will raise. Maintain the temperature between 221° F and 230° F (105° C/110° F) for 10 minutes. Is critical do not go over these temperatures!Finally, sift the liquid through a sieve lined with a few layers of cheesecloth, and pour into jars or boxes.Let the butter reach room temperature then store in the fridge.
