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. Here’s how: Melt butter in a light-colored skillet so you can gauge the color. Swirl 4 minutes or until butter smells nutty and is golden brown.

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