Easy homemade cream of anything sauce ... no can opener needed ;)

1Cup of the broth
2Tbs butter
2Tbs flour
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4tsp dill (optional - but really makes it extra yummy)
Heavy cream (optional)

Melt the butter on med/low heat and whisk in the flour.  Let it cook for about 2min. 
Add in ½ of the broth while continuing to whisk, be careful because it will bubble up.  It will clump up initially but continue to whisk and it will get creamy and thicken up.  Once you have removed all the lumps, add the rest of the broth and whisk until it is at the desired thickness.  Whisk in the dill and CAREFULLY taste the sauce (it will be hot!).  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Finally, whisk in a splash (about ¼ cup) of cream for a richer flavor.
