Butter Science

If you have read many of these experiments, you know that I like experiments that deal with food. Part of this is because I really like to eat. I also like to cook, finding it very relaxing. I also seem to get lots of good feedback from the food related experiments, telling me that many of you like to eat too. This experiment comes from the wonderful dinner we had tonight. Our good friends Bob and James came by today and we went out to eat. I ordered a bucket of steamed oysters (I LOVE oysters!) and I was enjoying dipping them in the various combinations of horseradish, cocktail sauce, and butter. I especially like the clarified butter you get with seafood and that got me thinking about the chemistry butter.
