Have you heard of brown butter before? This flavorful goodness can be used to make sweet and savory dishes richer and tastier. But what is it exactly, and how do you make it? Read on, and you’ll discover the recipe for an absolute game-changer in the kitchen.

What Is Brown Butter?

Butter browning is the process of melting butter and cooking it until it goes brown and toasty. This process gets rid of the water in the butter. Its taste and smooth texture can improve any recipe. It’s also super quick and easy to make. But be careful; butter burns quickly, so you should keep a close eye on it when it’s cooking. It’s recommended to use a light-colored or glass pan so you can see the color of the butter more easily.

Brown butter can be used for savory and sweet dishes. You can add a spoonful to vegetables, eggs, or even pasta. You can also use it to cook scrambled eggs or add it to pasta sauces. When it comes to baking, you can use it for pretty much everything from cookies and pancakes to brownies and banana bread. Use it for the frosting, too!

  1. Heat a pan over low-medium heat. Add the butter, and swirl the pan every minute or so.
  2. Once it’s melted, continue cooking until you get a brown color and a nutty smell. Check it frequently to make sure that it doesn’t burn.
  3. If it starts to foam up, simply spoon the foam off the top.
  4. Remove from the heat and put the butter in a heat-safe bowl. It can keep for a couple of weeks in the fridge.

Alaska Airlines just added two warm-weather routes right before winter hits! Now, you can fly to two beautiful US beach destinations. They say many people want to relax and have fun in the sun when it’s cold outside, and these two new routes seem to confirm that.

Fun in the Sun in Hawaii

Kirsten Amrine is the vice president of revenue management and network planning for the airline, and she stated that people still strongly desire relaxing, warm destinations, especially as it gets colder. That’s part of the reason why the airline just kicked off the first-ever regular nonstop from Seattle/Everett to Honolulu, making Paine Field feel the Hawaiian love.
