flour and remaining 3 tablespoons water and whisk into liquid remaining in

paste to kettle, stirring, and simmer until filling is reduced to about 6 
cups. filling may be made 2 days ahead and chilled, covered.

and whisk in flour. cook roux, whisking, 1 minute and add milk in a 
stream,

slightly, about 2 minutes, and season with salt.
