Transcript White Sauce (All-in-One Method)

White Sauce
Ingredients: 600ml milk, 50g butter or margarine, 50g plain
flour, 1 x 5ml teaspoon mustard paste.
1. Put the milk, flour, butter and mustard paste in a saucepan.
Use a balloon whisk or wooden spoon and stir ALL THE TIME
over a medium heat until the sauce boils and thickens.
2. Continue cooking for about 1 minute to make sure the flour
is completely cooked. The finished sauce should be thick
enough to coat the back of a spoon and should be smooth and
glossy. Add salt and pepper to taste.
3. If you are making a cheese sauce, add the cheese off the
heat when the sauce is ready. Stir well and the cheese will
melt without needing to go back on the heat. If you overcook
the cheese, it will be stringy and indigestible.
