So, what is anhydrous butter?

Anhydrous butter, also known as butteroil or clarified butter, is a premium ingredient used in various culinary applications. It is made by removing the moisture and milk solids from regular butter, resulting in a concentrated and pure form of butterfat with a high smoke point. Anhydrous butter has a rich, creamy flavor that is ideal for baking, sautéing, frying, and making sauces. Its low water content also makes it resistant to spoilage, making it a popular choice for long-term storage. This versatile and luxurious ingredient is prized by professional chefs and home cooks alike for its superior taste and performance.
