Stir Up a Money Saving Time Saver

Janet Groene's

White Sauce Mix
       Basic white sauce mix is the basis for thousands of recipes, from gravy to casseroles. It's costly to use a can of condensed cream soup and it probably has extra flavors, sodium or additives that you prefer not to use. When you have this homemade mix on hand, you're in control of amounts, added ingredients and thickness.

4 cups nonfat dry milk
1 pound butter
2 cups flour

        When butter comes to room temperature, cut it into the dry ingredients until mealy. Store in the refrigerator for up to eight weeks To make a cup of basic sauce, whisk a half cup of the mix into a cup of cold water. Stir over low-medium heat until it thickens. From here you can season to taste with salt, pepper, grated cheese, curry, vegetables, mushrooms, lemon, tarragon, ad inf to make a sauce. Or, stir in bouillon powder or paste to make gravy.  If it's too thick, thin as desired with water, bouillon, broth, tomato juice, etc.
