I don't eat flour or anything with gluten, so I have a dilemma when looking for a good thickener.  Potato starch works for some items but not all.  I invented a healthy alternative.  For those who are gluten intolerant, be sure and use a gluten-free cornstarch such as Argo.

All-Purpose Thickener

1 cup cornstarch
2 Tbsp. turmeric
1 tsp. (or more) black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 to 1 tsp any favorite herbs

Place in a empty spice container or other jar, preferably plastic.  Cover tightly and shake and turn until well mixed.  Don't skip the black pepper as it activates the healthy properties of the turmeric.

After combining and heating you can add beef or chicken granules (or use broth instead of milk), salt to taste and if you wish add any other seasonings or herbs,

I use this instead of flour in Granny's Eggs; 1 tbsp. with 1 cup of milk or coconut milk.  You can mix this thoroughly with liquid instead and pour into meat drippings or use for any other cooked or baked recipe.
