SO easy - put a pound of butter in a heavy pan, like a Dutch oven, then into the oven

Turn to 250 degrees - no need to preheat - set your timer to 1 hour 15 min and check on it. Then another 15 minutes and it should be done. The stuff floating on top should be browned around the edges. I line my colander with 3 thicknesses of cheesecloth over a glass bowl, and pour the butter through, being careful not to pour the milky solids out that have settled to the bottom of the pan. Twist the cheesecloth gently to get the excess butter out and toss it. After it cools a bit, pour it into a jar with a lid and cool completely before screwing on the lid. Keep on the counter for about 6 months.

Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out, but I can usually shut her up with cookies!
