After a minute of blending, I have a batch of thick slurry. Note that there is a secret ingredient to the right of the blender – a pack of cigarette rolling papers. I was given two big bags full of these Drum rolling papers by a friend who liked the tobacco but not the papers that came with every pouch. I have encountered the stash many times over the years and thought there must be an art project in there somewhere (paper wedding dress?). It finally dawned on me that these were the perfect addtion to my slurry, because they are bleached pure white and contain a bit of adhesive, which adds needed sizing to the paper. Sizing, like starch or glue, creates a stronger, firmer sheet of paper. I add about 10 ripped-up rolling papers to each blender batch. Don’t have a stash of rolling papers lying around? Use envelope flaps for that important dash of glue.
