I don't have to avoid gluten, but I was round at the Mums place last week, and she tried cooking with it, she is a good baker, but was not happy with the result.
I suggested that she sent the unused stuff to the Blue Circle factory in Westbury for testing, maybe they could make a new cement out of it.
Makes crap pastry that's for sure
There are 10 types of people, those that understand binary and those that don't.
I've got an old Scout manual that says the same thing, how times change.
As for plastic bags, I try and avoid them too, they really don't biodegrade, and to be food safe you shouldn't really reuse them. If you're thinking of making boil in the bag to avoid washing up, then you're probably not thinking of bring them home sterilising and re-using anyway, and tossing them to buy more seems a right waste.
I read something the other day which while probably not always true made me think about plastic bags, it went something like this.
"The sh*t you dog just did will take 72 hours to dissolve into the ground, the plastic bag you just picked it up with will take 6000 years."
with how unfit i am these days id use more energy digging a 3 feet hole than id get from the food in the can!! LOL
No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn....
OK one here from military training areas, now on most you are not allowed to did holes deeper than 2 ft due to damaging the area (Salisbury plain has alot of archaeology in it (95% of the plain)) in places where it is allowed it must be checked out by an archaeologist first and each corner must has a 10 fig grid reference, people often use the same sites to set up "camps" and bivi areas and so when you dig your shell scrape somewhere were people have been digging them in the same place for over 40 years it is amazing how many tins still keep coming up and now you have to take it with you now.
Improvise, adapt, overcome!!! OR Anything goes!!!

Do the same rules apply to artillery batteries, TinkyPete?

Beliefs are like watches. Each trusts his own, but no two run the same.
A little while ago I was in our immersion heater cupboard and found a load of finely shredded Tesco bags. My wife said, 'Oh no, we've got a mouse.' Judging from the amount of shredded stuff, more like several.
Then we found a load more shredded in the drawers under the bed in the spare bedroom. We started doing a real clear out, thinking we must be infested and cursing the lazy cat, who was sleeping on the bed as usual.
I grabbed a few Tesco bags from my 'office' to put rubbish in - we always hang on to and make use of the bags this way. Picking one up full of stuff, it shredded in my hands and emptied its contents on the floor. I rubbed another between my hands and it fell apart.
The things were shredding themselves! We didn't have mice, just a bunch of carrier bags in the process of decomposing
