Daily Condiment: Love Butter

Let’s face it: margarine is crap. Hydrogenated, whipped, emulsified, crap. Butter is natural. Butter is good. And if you practice a little moderation (aka self control), it is not at all bad for you. My personal favorite is clarified butter. You melt real butter on the stove… skim off the foam that rises to the top and strain out the solids that are left behind. The stuff that is left is fabulous. It can withstand higher heat and lasts far longer than I can keep it around. It also takes flavor infusion very nicely, indeed. A little rosemary butter and some bread just out of the oven…
