  1. Whisk all of the ingredients together in a bowl or saucepan until everything is well combined and the cornstarch is dissolved.

  3. Use as desired.



Store in an airtight container or jar in the fridge for up to a week.

Use a nonstick pan. This sauce can be a little delicate and you don’t want it burning or sticking to a pan.
