Rendered Butter

Listen to Episode 65: Rendered Butter


  • 1 lb butter, salted or unsalted


  • Slowly melt the butter in a pan over low heat.
  • Skim off the solids that form on the surface, then set the butter aside to allow any other solids to sink to the bottom.
  • Carefully pour the rendered butter off and into a clean jar.
  • Skim off any remaining butter solids. The solids can be composted or thrown away.
  • 1 lb butter makes about 3/4 c of rendered butter. You can store in a sealed jar on the counter or in the refrigerator.
