Thicken It Up!
Some time ago you had an article which talked about thickeners. One was mentioned that did a great job and did not need to be cooked. I have gone through the archive and cannot find it. Can you help me?
I've included the link below to the article I think you were thinking of? I also know of the thickener Ultra-Gel or Instant Thickener. This food starch doesnt need to be cooked. It will thicken both cold and hot foods. Its rather fun to use to make pure fruit syrups or sauces.
I simply heat up some apple juice, say, add a bit of the thickener, wait for about 5 minutes, and then pour onto pancakes. Its so nice to not have to add sugar. Ive also used it to add a glaze to diced fresh fruit in place of whipped cream or other fat/sugar laden sauces. Very versatile and quite fun to experiment with...
