2. Cornstarch

Cornstarch is something my mom always had in the kitchen when I was growing up. She always used it to make her gravy thick. Cornstarch is a great all-purpose thickener that works well for most sauces. The only sauces that it doesn’t work well for are acid based sauces, which do much better with arrowroot. When using cornstarch, and most thickening agents, you will want to mix it with a little water before adding it to your sauce. This will prevent clumps from forming.
