If you have never browned butter before, don’t worry, it is extremely easy. You’re going to melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. The butter will start to get foamy and orangy brown bits will form at the bottom of the pan. This means the butter is ready. It will take about 5 minutes, so make sure you don’t walk away from the pan.
