I don't want to shovel any more compost, so I'm going to leaf...

I remember some high fibre bread, back in the mid '90s that was found to have actual sawdust as the increased fibre. o_O

I searched around, and found some articles listing brands of bread using wood pulp from the 1970's and 1980's too.

Here is an article taken from the Emigrant's Handbook of 1848 on how to make bread from wood.

I don't think I could get that hungry, 'knock on wood'

this was the perfect final thread to read before I head off to bed.

I think I'll go saw some logs of my own now. (Don't worry, I'll keep the dust out of your food.)
