Melt your butter.
Add the flour.
Stir. Adjust your amount of flour so that it looks something like this. So just add a little at the time.
And keep stirring so it does not burn. This is important for the flavor. Continious stirring.
It will gradually change consistansy and color. Whitout burning.
When you reach this color it is just right!
Add just a little of your broth. About 1/3 of the total.
