accidentally separated my butter...help!

amberwaters Nov 12, 2012 03:59 PM

I'm baking brownies and I left my butter in the microwave too long (on "warm", a low setting). When I remembered it again, it was ghee (clarified) with sediment on bottoms (not burned). Does anybody know if I can still use it to melt my chocolate and bake? Thanks!!

    Actually, some recipes require ghee or clarified butter (which is what you now have if you strain the solids). As the others have said, you will be perfectly fine.
