    Clarified butter has a longer shelf life and higher smoke point than regular butter. [Photographs: Vicky Wasik] What is clarified butter? Plain butter that's been gently simmered to remove its water content, then strained to remove the browned milk solids to create a more stable cooking fat. When comparing clarified vs plain butter, clarified is best for recipes where plain butter might smoke or burn. Here's the easiest method for at-home cooks.
