        In regard to brother Bill's comments on "rocks of light" 
(as they are sarcastically known in Buffalo, NY) I offer my recipe 
for Gnostic Mass wafers that melt in your mouth.

aquire at least 1tsp of the "blood" of your choice

sift 2 cups unbleached unbromated fine milled white flour
(King Arthur works fine; so does Pillsbury unbleached) into a bowl
rubbing in 3Tsp of honey and the thrown sediment from a bottle 
of good vintage port (I use Graham's Malvados, at least 8 years 

add 2/3 cups virgin olive oil with oil of Abramelin to taste 
mixing these into the flour/honey/leavings with hands or a fork.
(be carful to use an Abramelin oil that is non-synthetic and 
free of chemicals used in "hot extraction techniques")

kneed in blood

roll out to 1/4 inch thickness, cut in small rounds (a well oiled
lipstick cover is my tool of choice) and if desired stamp with a 
design (some years ago I made a unicursal hexagram stamp out of 
Sculpy TM modeling clay that works quite well)

bake at 425 degrees F for less than 10 minutes (as soon as the 

        This will get you about 160 Cakes of Light that will 
keep almost indefinatly in a closed container in the freezer. If 
you prefer storage in the altar, edible life will depend on 
climactic conditions and your tolerance for semi-rancid olive 
oil. (I have several jars labeled "vintage ____ for incense use 
only" in my combustables supply drawer.

        Another thing -  A.C.'s statment about actually finding 
beetles infesting Boleskine is not to be taken lightly - I once 
tried keeping my cakes in an orgone box that had a hole in the 
lid. This was stored in my altar. One day I found about 2 dozen 
horned beetles in with the cakes; unfortunatly they were all 
dead on discovery (no chance to crush while still animate.)

Love is the law, love under will.
