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 doesnโ€™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.
