Tuesday Tip: How to Brown Butter

Sorry for being MIA yesterday.  Mondays always seem to be super busy for me.  Today, we are talking about how to brown butter.  What do you brown butter for?  Not much in American cuisine.  India uses it more often, but consider browning butter to add flavor and depth.  Even if you only slightly brown it!

{Step 1:  Slowly melt the butter in a pan}

{Step 2:  Don't walk away!  This process only takes 3 minutes (approximately) and you don't want burned butter!}

{Step 3:  Butter fat should start to brown.  You should also start to smell something slightly nutty.  Don't walk away!}

{Step 4:  Pull butter off the heat as more butter fats get brown.  The butter will smell nice and nutty now!}

{Step 5:  Use as directed by the recipe} 

Some great recipes to try browned butter are Roasted Cauliflower with Brown Butter Bread Crumbs or Salted Brown Butter Crispy Treats!  I haven't tried it yet, but my favorite food blogger, smitten kitchen, suggests using it in mashed potatoes instead of regular butter.  It's on my list to try!
