    Great to have on hand. Makes a quick sauce, gravy or thickner. I keep it on hand at all times. Seasoning or flavor can be changed to suit.

    I found this recipe several years ago in TOH's archives. There's a similar one there too. Excellent way to cheat Big Business Foodjunk out of the trash put in those cans!
