Milk solids from clarified butter

Do you folks use this for anything or do you just toss it out?

Oh, don't throw it out!! It's great to add to anything you want a little butter flavor. veggies, sauces, baked potatoes, etc.

Clarified butter has its place though luvs. I love butter for a lot of things that clarified is usually used for (like lobster), but for something like popcorn, clarified is better because with the water removed it does not make the popcorn soggy.

yeah, i concur- to an extent..... prefer my non-clarified butter, though. we utilize that clarification process so often it loses it's speciality & other options seem more flavorful. or complex.
