Clarified Butter

Definition: Clarified Butter

Clarified Butter
An unsalted butter that has been slowly melted until the milk solids separate and the water evaporates, leaving only pure, liquid butterfat. The foam is skimmed from the top and the clarified butter is used in cooking. The removal of the milk creates a butter that can stand up to higher temperatures. It lacks the richness of milky butter and is also known as drawn butter or ghee.
