Brown butter is true kitchen alchemy. Watch a stick of butter melt in a pan, transforming from frothy yellow to brilliant gold to a rich, dark brown in a matter of minutes. As the milk solids caramelize, the butter clarifies, and a gorgeous aroma overtakes your kitchen while the butter browns into a golden sauce that tastes almost like hazelnuts. Teff flour and brown butter are a natural pairing; with their dark brown shades and nutty flavors, they enhance each other beautifully.
