HOW TO CLARIFY BUTTER
It's the milk solids in butter that cause it to brown and burn. Remove them and you've got clear, golden oil.
To clarify butter, melt it in a small saucepan over very low heat. Let stand, off the heat, until the white milk solids sink to the bottom of the melted butter.
Carefully pour off the liquid butter and strain through damp cheesecloth.
Store in refrigerator in a covered jar.

It sounds funky, but its delicious, a vegetarian recipe.

And here I was not knowing how to clarify butter. However, I've never needed to use it, and I doubt I will need to use it in the future.
