   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      cups          Instant Powdered Milk
    2      cups          Flour
    4      teaspoons     Salt
    2      cups          Margarine -- (4 sticks)
 This batch makes about 12 -one cup servings. Each one cup serving costs 16 cent
 s. This batch will fit very snugly in a 3# empty shortening can. 1 keep this st
 ored in the refrigerator because I don't use this as quickly as some of my mixe
 s that I make and it does have margarine in it. I keep this recipe taped to the
  can. Then I cover the recipe on the can with clear contact paper making it eas
 y to wipe off . For each one cup serving of white sauce mix. 1/2 c. White Sauce
  Mix 1 c. cool water Heat to boiling
 If using natural flavorings, beef, chicken or turkey, take drippings including 
 fat and put in cup or bowl and put in freezer until fat rises to the top and ha
 rdens. Remove from freezer and discard fat that has floated to the top. (To spe
 ed up the fat hardening process add an ice cube to the drippings before putting
  in the freezer.) Some of the drippings may then be added to the above white sa
 uce. These drippings can be very strong in flavor. I would add only 1 tablespoo
 n at a time until you get the desired
  flavor. If you don't have any natural drippings available then use the followi
 ng substitutes. For each one cup serving above add 1/2 teaspoon of chicken or b
 eef soup base. Be careful because these can be very high in salt. To make a bee
 f gravy that is darker in color you may need to add a teaspoon of kitchen bouqu
 et. And while I'm at it, perhaps I should give you the potatoe soup recipe that
  will use white sauce mix :)
