How much clarified butter you get will depend on the the brand of butter you use. I used ½ pound of Kerrygold salted butter and got ¾ cup of clarified butter.

In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter, then turn down to a simmer. (You can clarify a larger amount, if desired, and keep it for later, same instructions)
Simmer the butter, keeping a close eye on it. The fats will sink to the bottom and foam will rise to the top. Do not stir.
Carefully skim the foam from the top as it rises. When no more foam rises, carefully pour the yellow butter into a separate dish, leaving the solids behind in the bottom of the pan. You can pour the butter through a cheesecloth to ensure you catch all the solids.
Gr8 Do Ahead Tip:
Clarified butter will keep in the refrigerator for up to 10 weeks.
