Making flying geese or any triangle piece of patchwork without starch is a no-go for me. I’m such a homebody and could not be bothered to leave the house to go and quickly get a new can of it, so I went to Pinterest to find a recipe (because that’s easier, right?).
I picked a recipe and made the starch. It worked, but because I couldn’t break up the lumps of starch properly, it coated my iron with a crusty white gunk. It took half an hour just to clean the iron, and I was still in need of starch when I was finished.
Now I cook with corn starch often. I love sauces and cornstarch it’s a thickener, so I know how to get it mixed in properly. It dawned on me exactly how to tweak the recipe to get it to work correctly.
