Who would have thought that a simple technique like browning your butter would give so many flavors into all your recipes? Pastry Chef Robyn Lenzi shares her tips on how to elevate butter to add another layer of flavor in this Grokker Premium video.

Cooking Recipe

Directions:

Cooking Butter until it's brown is basically cooking butter until the milk solids have been toasted and turned brown.

This brings out a deep nutty aroma and flavor that goes well with a lot of recipes.

To start, measure out the exact amount of butter the recipe asks for.

Watch to see the water evaporating from the butter.
This is important because you will need to add back water later for
the loss of volume.

When you see foam starting to form on top of the butter, that tells you it is almost ready.

Constantly stir to see if the bottom has turned brown.

When you see a thick foam and browning on the bottom turn off the stove and transfer the butter to a bowl immediately to stop it from cooking any further and turning black.

Add water back into the butter to add volume back into the butter.

Now it is ready to be used for recipes that ask for normal butter but for recipes that ask for softened butter take this brown butter and leave in the refrigerator until it becomes soft in texture.
