Parchment Paper

Years ago, parchment paper used to be hard to come by, in fact I remember paying around $15 for a box of it, so early in our relationship when Jp discovered it, I stopped him one day for using it for EVERYTHING because it was expensive. However, thanks to Martha Stewart and a Food Network and hundreds of bakers out there, parchment paper is quite reasonable, and I no longer covet it for extra special projects.

Jp on the other hand, loves to remind me of the fact that I once protected it and limited it's usage. I have double checked with other cooks and bakers and they confirmed that yes indeed, it was once an expensive kitchen staple.
Do you remember when it was really expensive?

Yes.
and hard to find.
I remember giving someone a $20 to pick up a large roll in a neighbouring communitee that had a discount store and could get a big roll for cheap.
