Ingredients

2 lbs unsalted butter


Instructions

Slow Cooker

  1. Add unsalted butter to a slow cooker. Leave the lid slightly ajar to let steam escape.
  2. Cook on high 2-4 or low 4-6 hours.
  3. When done, let cool slightly.
  4. Line a strainer with cheesecloth or a coffee liner. Place the lined strainer over a mason jar. Carefully pour the liquid through the strainer.

Instant Pot

  1. Turn on the pressure cooker and select sauté.  If your pot tends to heat up faster, switch to “less” . mode.
  2. Add butter to the pan. Set stopwatch for 12 minutes. Simmer the butter until the until the milk solids start to separate and fall to the bottom of the pressure cooker.
  3. Around minute 12 minutes, the milk solids at the bottom should start to brown. When this happens, turn off pressure cooker. Using oven mitts, remove the inner pot of the pressure cooker from the base so the butter doesn’t continue to cook.

Stove Top

  1. Melt butter in heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat.
  2. Stir occasionally while the butter simmers.
  3. Turn off the heat when the milk solids that fall to the bottom of the pan start to brown. Let cool.
  4. Line a strainer with cheesecloth or a coffee liner. Place the lined strainer over a mason jar. Carefully pour the liquid through the strainer.

Notes

For this recipe you’ll also need cheesecloth or coffee liners and mesh strainer.
