    Method

    1. In a heavy based saucepan (ideally), melt the butter over a low heat.
    2. Turn the heat down to as low as it will go, and let the butter gently blip for 20–30 minutes. The longer you leave the butter to cook, the richer and nuttier it will taste.
    3. Once it’s ready, pour through a muslim cloth into a jar (this will collect the milk solids, which you don’t want)
    4. Allow to cool and store in the fridge. It will last for up to a year in the fridge or about 3 months on the countertop.
    5. This will be your new best friend for frying and roasting!
