Better Butter

Plugraclarifiedbutter One thing I learned from my dishwashing days at Bette's Diner (aside from proper latke-making technique), is the usefulness of clarified butter. It has a very high smoking point, so you can bring your pan to high temperatures to make the perfect omelette without risk of burning your butter. It's not hard to find the stuff in an Indian grocery (sold as ghee), but I recently spotted Plugrá Clarified Butter, a clarified version of the European-style butter. $5.99 for a 12 ounce jar at Gourmet Garage (or find a store near you).
