clear jel as a thickener
I make my own taco seasoning mix (much like the stuff you buy in packets at the supermarket) It calls for cornstarch to be added. I have been instead making it with clear jel. I was curious about then using this seasoning mix in canning. The other ingredients are basic seasonings: garlic powder, chili powder, salt, pepper etc. I have seen many receipes for sauces that say to leave the cornstarch out until you are ready to use, but I am wondering if since I am using clear jel, if it can be added before canning. I specifically want to use this seasoning mix to make enchilada sauce.
