STEP 1: If the butter is cold, cut it into cubes and place it into a light colored, medium size saucepan, over medium-low heat.

STEP 2: Use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to stir the butter occasionally. It will begin to bubble, continue stirring intermittently.

STEP 3: Once it begins to foam, stir continuously, making sure to scrape the solids off the bottom of the pan.

STEP 4: Remove from the heat and continue stirring for another minute or so, until the butter darkens into an amber color.

STEP 5: Pour the butter, with all the little solid bits, into a heat safe jar and allow it to cool or use as directed.
