Ingredients

  • 250 g (9 oz) salted butter

Method

In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Continue to simmer until the butter caramelises, scraping the solids from the base of the pan using a wooden spoon. Continue to simmer until the butter turns a deep brown colour, then remove from the heat and carefully dip the base of the pan in a bowl of cold water. This will prevent the butter from cooking too far. Once cooled, store in the refrigerator until needed.
