So, what is smörolja?

Smörolja is a Swedish term for butter oil, which is a rich and flavorful ingredient commonly used in Scandinavian cuisine. It is made by slowly melting down butter until the water content has evaporated and the milk solids have separated, leaving only pure golden liquid behind. Smörolja has a nutty, creamy taste with a subtle hint of sweetness that enhances the flavor of baked goods, sauces, and dressings. It also has a higher smoke point than regular butter, making it ideal for frying or sautéing. As a versatile and delicious ingredient, smörolja adds depth and richness to any dish it's added to.
