Browned Butter

Browned Butter

Everyone knows butter can burn easily, but getting it one step before burned - to just browned - brings out a nutty flavor that's perfect for hearty fall foods.

Melt butter in a light-colored skillet so you can gauge the color. Swirl four minutes or until butter smells nutty and is golden brown.

Toss with pasta, winter squash or vegetables. Drizzle over fish or use for baking.
