In saucepan, melt butter and allow to simmer on low for about 5 minutes to enhance the flavor by lightly browning. Add minced garlic, stir, and cook for 3-5 minutes or just until it barely begins to brown. Remove from heat and add cayenne pepper and salt, stirring until incorporated throughout. Place in fridge to cool until it begins to solidify, about 20 minutes. Note: there will be extra confit- reserve for later use (spread on everything!!).
