Gluten for Punishment

NORI (Wheat paste for Japanese Woodcuts)
1/3 cup wheat or rice flour
2/3 cups water
Heat over a low fire 5 ", stirring constantly until thick and almost
translucent. Remove from heat and stir vigorously.

Note: if you try this on a double-boiler it will take forever. Hold the
mixture directly over a fire, stir constantly, and keep from boiling.
Should take less than five minutes. You're best off using glutinous
rice flour if you have a choice.
