clarified butter

6 posts in this topic

So I took the time to clarify some butter this weekend.  It came out well, poured into a jar and stuck it in the frig.  Went to use it and it was rock hard!  I don't know what I expected but I didn't expect to it become hard like that.  Do you all keep your clarified butter in the frig?  Did I screw it up?

 

thx

You didn't screw it up.

 

Take it out of the fridge and leave it on the counter. That's where I store mine, out of direct sunlight.

I made my clarified butter from Kerrygold and it rock hard from the refrigerator (which I expected) but is VERY soft - actually runny - at room temperature.  Any ideas what I did wrong?

What makes you think that it's wrong?  When I buy it from the store, depending on how warm my house is, it can get pretty soupy...

Thanks SugarcubeOD (love your handle). I only bought it once and it was firm at room temperature.  That is why I thought I made a mistake.  Glad to know!
