All I know is always add the cornstarch to cold liquid, ie some water,
then, add it to whatever is cooking, mine always thickens OK.

I use it in gravy and all sorts of stuff, I dissolve it in water,
sherry, soy, tamari anything cold, then add it and simmer for a few
minutes till the dish is thicker.
