Make a Roux...... Here's How
It's actually pretty easy, just requires some
patience. (have any?) Start with a large heavy
cast-iron skillet 1-2 cups flour (I like about 1-1/2)
1 cup cooking oil. Get the oil hot, then start
adding the flour, stirring constantly over
medium heat until the roux is dark.
(How dark??) Your discretion, I like mine
dark brown, like my boots. For small recipes use 2-1 flour to oil

If your roux gets scorched, Throw it away and start over.
