I tried this with corn starch because I couldn't find the potato starch. It didn't work at all. The mixture never became clear, just became very thick. So I transfered it into dessert cups and thought it might still work out. However it ended up just a starchy tasting globulous concoction that really wasn't eatable. I don't want to leave a starred review because I did use a different starch but obviously I was disapointed.
