    oilpatchjo's Note:

    These recipes and tips are on the side of a Canada Corn Starch box. I have used this product always and I have never had it fail me. Although it is called Canada Corn Starch it is actually from Memphis Tennessee so I do not know what the this product would be called in the USA.

Corn starch has twice the thickening power of flour.When a gravy, sauce, soup or stew calls for flour, use half as much corn starch to thicken. To thicken hot liquids, first mix Canada Corn Starch with a little cold water, until smooth. Gradually stir into hot liquid until blended.
