  1. Warm the milk in a saucepan or in the microwave without boiling. Set aside.
  2. Sieve the flour.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in the flour and cook for a couple of minutes. This gives you the roux.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and add the milk a little at the time, stirring well after each addition.
  5. Return to the heat and cook over a very low heat, stirring continuously until the sauce thickens.
  6. Add the salt and a generous grating of nutmeg and continue cooking for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
