600 ml water high heat saucepan
1/4 cup whole flaxseed
Heat up saucepan with water and whole flaxseeds to boil and stir. Keep stirring slowly until you get a snotty mucus. Turn off the heat and thicken for 30mins - 1hr.
Use a stocking or nut bag to strain out the seeds (be warned it feels strange) into a jar.
