A gourmet is a person who is knowledgeable in fine food and drink.
Heat butter in saucepan or microwave. Separate clear golden fat from all top crust and white sediment in the bottom. Make sure there are absolutely no white flecks in finished butter - it must be clear transparent gold.
Clarified butter can be used to cook with at very high heats and will not burn, since all milk solids have been removed.
