Basic Roux

1 c Flour (all-purpose)
1 c Cooking oil (your favorite brand, margarine is also good)

Heat oil in heavy pot or Dutch Oven. When oil is hot, gradually add flour, stirring constantly until well mixed. Lower flame and continue stirring until chocolate brown. When roux is chocolate brown, removed from pot and set aside. If roux remains in the pot it will continue to cook and get too dark.

Always use warm water to dissolve the roux.
