This is a classic thickener for dark soups and beef gravies. Make a large batch and keep it in
the fridge, for convenience.
1 lb Butter or df margarine
3 c Better Batter Gluten Free Flour
Melt the butter over medium heat in a heavy saucepan. Add the flour slowly (about 1 c at a time), stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth. Continue to cook for 25-35 minutes, stirring continuously, or until a brown colour, similar to chocolate is achieved.
Allow to cool and transfer to an airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to three weeks.
To use: reheat in the microwave or a small saucepan before adding to hot liquid.
