   Here’s a way to make the cornstarch paste called for
   in many of our recipes.
   
   Our recipes call for cornstarch paste as the
   thickening agent without specifying the exact
   proportions of cornstarch and water.  This recipe is
   offered as an approximate guide until you find what
   works best for you. Some cooks prefer the thin paste,
   some prefer thick.
   
   Thoroughly mix together cornstarch and cold water.
   Always stir mixture again just before using because
   the starch settles.
