Instant blending flour

Has anyone heard of this before? I'm sitting here watching Paula Dean and she's using it in a soup. Has anyone tried it? Whats your opinion?

Thats what I thought. Cause sometimes its a pain getting the flour and the water all blended so you don't get any lumps. I think I'll have to see if my grocery store sells it. If not then maybe WalMart does.

I sure wish there was a Walmart close to here.

Or maybe I don't. We buy too much crap when ever we go into one. lol

She may be talking about WONDRA, a Pillsbury product. It's a specially milled flour. The different shape of the granules promotes easier blending, reducing clumping tendencies.

Wondra? Never heard of it but will look for it. I guess I was never exposed to it as mom always used flour and water to thicken bases. Thanks again.....I'll look for it.

I've used it, and it works great in gravies and sauces. You kids haven't heard of it because it came out so long ago...like 35-40 years. It was highly advertised at the time.
