    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to "thicken" a sauce?  I am =

Thank you so much!

Robin, the key is to whisk the cornstarch with a small amount of liquid to prevent lumps from forming and, as Persian said, to get it to thicken it must be heated. Arrowroot also works the same way but doesn't add a starchy taste.
Good luck,
