If you think simply melting butter is the same as making clarified butter.....well, no. You're well on your way, but take a few extra minutes and get the real deal.
By removing the water content and the milk solids, you're left with butter of the gods. And so very simple.
Take a 4 cup microwave safe measuring cup or bowl. Place two sticks of butter in the cup or bowl and melt the butter in the microwave. It will be probably take about 2 minutes.
Remove from the microwave and let sit for a few minutes. The butter will separate into three layers. Skim off the top layer of foam and discard. Slowly pour the clarified butter into a separate heatproof container. Discard the bottom layer of milk solids.
