  • About


  • ½ cup (120 ml) heavy cream
  • 1 sprig thyme


In a heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat, bring the heavy cream with the sprig of thyme to a simmer.

Whisk the cornstarch and tablespoons water together to make a slurry and stir it into the heavy cream. Once the cream has thickened, remove the thyme sprig and discard.
