This if from the cornstarch box. It takes me back to the good ol' days of seventh grade homemaking class. Very easy and a nice treat.

I was looking for a blancmange recipe and came across this. I used one percent milk and it thickened up nicely (and fast). I used two pans for my makeshift double boiler. this was delicious hot and great on my sore throat. Thanks Bertha
