Is this for swollen joints, or infection?

If you apply it to an infected spot which has a thorn or other foreign body in, it will draw out the object, or draw out the pus to aid healing


Onion halves heated and applied to a sore place work on the same principal, as do kaolin poultices, which seem mainly to be used for animals now but I remember having one applied to a septic spot on my leg, as a child...

For those who have been awarded medals, stale bread was reccommended to use to clean them as it wouldn't stain the ribbons, so I guess stale bread can be used as a metal cleaner, I must add I wouldn't use bread that contains stoneground flour & I have not tried it myself but I might give it a go at some stage before Nov 11th, or when I am servicing a tuba...

Mr D says you can print with stale bread (similar to potato printing)

..and there's also the wonderful Queen of Puddings, with jam underneath, breadcrumbs in an egg/milk mixture, and meringue on the top.

Recipe for Apple Charlotte posted in the recipe bit. This is a very old recipe - my mother used to cook it when we were small, and her mother before her. Not to be confused with the kind of charlotte which has sponge fingers round it, it uses a good amount of breadcrumbs if you need to use some up!

Savoury bread & butter pudding!

Kind of made up using left over onion bread, a couple of leeks, some mushrooms and frozen sweetcorn, 3 eggs and a pint of milk. You can put whatever you like in, but this is what I had that needed using up

In a frying pan soften the leeks in some oil & butter, add sweetcorn and mushrooms until cooked
Sliced the bread and buttered it and layered it in a baking dish with leek & mushroom mixture,
Whisk up eggs & milk with some salt & pepper, pour over pudding and leave to soak for half an hour. Grate cheese over the top and bake, I did it at gas 6 for 45 minutes.

It was very yummy

I'm thinking it would also work adding in some smoked haddock or bacon

I've never seen a recipe for savoury bread and better pudding before - it sounds delish
