Re: a ? Re: Starch Pastes

I used potato starch, ONCE! From what I remember I used the same
proportions as for wheat starch/flour. I also made it up the way I had
originally learned, mix up with a little cold water, enough to make a
slurry, then add the balance in BOILING water, stirring as you go. To make
this short, I ended up with a paste ball, it even bounced. Have no idea
what I did wrong, but also didn't try again...
