I am not at all certain I need to have newspaper inks and newsprint chemicals in my biscuit dough.

PS: I am just now reading a fascinating history of paper, so the concept of what goes into paper and what is printed on it, is foremost in my mind.

Newsprint ink these days is soy-based and is pretty much non-toxic.

40 years ago many of the inks were lead based.

Dutch ovens.

The newspaper could be replaced with flour sacks or whatever material the cowboys had at hand.

Best thing I've ever found for rolling out dough is a piece of finely woven linen or cotton cloth (a section old sheet works nicely) and liberally floured.

I can be as much as a germaphobe as the next guy, but are even a hundred batches of biscuits made on newsprint worse than say, smoking a single cigar? Or eating stuff prepared an an improperly cleaned cutting board?

That said, I wouldn't use newspaper in the kitchen, only because I find it not that burdensome to just flour a wood cutting board or breadboard (or grab some parchment paper) and do the dough there. It's like two minutes of cleanup afterwards. I wouldn't hesitate to use the newspaper for outside or camp cooking though.

I think a flexible cutting board would be great for making those on and I need to try some in the Dutch oven next time the girl and I go camping.
