Instructions

Cooks' tip
Ideal for thickening sauces, casseroles, stir fries or gravy. For gravy, allow 15g of cornflour per 300ml of liquid, adding more or less for thicker or thinner results. Always add cold liquid to cornflour to make a smooth paste first before stirring into the liquid to avoid any lumps, and continue stirring until it comes to the boil. Try adding 1/2 tsp cornflour per egg white when making a pavlova as it helps produce a marshmallowy centre

Awful packaging

The cornflour is fine and good value but the plastic bag is incredibly messy and it is impossible not to get cornflour all over the surfaces. They just need to rethink the packaging.

Cornflour is cornflour

..But the packaging is clumsy - the box is made from thin card which was crushed when it arrived. The plastic bag inside was very thick and you have to put the cornflour in another container for storage unless you are using it all in one go!

poor packaging

Agree the contents are fab but the packaging needs to improve so you can spoon out without getting the kitchen covered in it!

totally with you

The cornflour is fine, but it would be great to have it in a custard powder type tub as offered by some of the other supermarkets - this would be much more practical.

Poor package

I agree to many reviews. The content is fine, but the plastic package in the box break up and it gets messy. I'd replace it with a zipper bag.

Hand-rolled Wild Strawberry and Pink Peppercorn Truffles

Hand-rolled Wild Strawberry and Pink Peppercorn Truffles

Summer is a tricky time for chocolate as the humidity and heat shorten its shelf life dramatically. At this time of year, I always look for truly special and seasonal ingredients. Fraises du bois or French wild strawberries are a real treat, and we are lucky that Scottish wild strawberries are becoming more widely availablle; otherwise regular strawberries will do.

Choc Shot and Raspberry Cheesecake

Choc Shot and Raspberry Cheesecake

This delicious, all natural recipe made with Choc Shot liquid chocolate has no table sugar added and uses low fat cream cheese and creme fraiche. A divine tasting but healthier creamy chocolate and raspberry dessert with an almond base packs a great nutritional punch. Healthy never tasted so good!
