Very encouraging to hear. The honey is something JitterBugDude suggested a while ago and it must make a big difference over white sugar.I changed the casing recipe a bit. Just some strong licorice root tea (about 8-10 oz) with a large teaspoon of honey... I put the shredded Burley on a plate, sprayed it well with the casing solution, put it in the oven at 250 degrees and waited until it was dry. I then flipped it over with a spatula, sprayed it again and put it in the oven until dry and toasted. I then took it out of the oven, sprayed it lightly one more time and put it in a large ziploc.
Extremely smooth. So I made up a batch of cigarettes with 40% Flue Cured, 30% toasted Burley, 20% Turkish and 10% YTP. Awesome smoke!
Glycyrrhiza Glabra is the name of the licorice plant. I just looked it up. That's got to be one of the hardest words to spell.Do you know the name of the plant? I use the whole bud blended and dusted on tobacca and bud soaked in vodka.For casin.
I'll have to Goolge that up to see if I can grow it. I have 10 or so anise plants. Not realy to flovor just to mellow it some.Glycyrrhiza Glabra is the name of the licorice plant. I just looked it up. That's got to be one of the hardest words to spell.
Sounds like you have anise growing nearby and it's working well as a flavoring.
Hand shred the tobacco and spread it out on a cookie sheet (about 10 leaves de-ribbed), spray it with 1/2 oz. sugar water and 1t. cocoa powder or Hershey's syrup (1T. to 1oz water).
I think it means 1Tablespoon with an ounce of water..& then 1 teaspoon of cocoa. .drinking choc..or hershey's syrup added to that(sugar syrup). .otherwise Don (f'mgrowit) my help clear things up betterI know the OP is old but I'm new here so...
What is the ratio of sugar to water you're using here?
I agree. You're missing two markets as is, the people that have their own favorite blends from your whole leaf, and the home grower that might like the option for his own leaf. The fact that it's prepackaged will have an appeal to the guys that want to stay out of the kitchen as much as possible.These posts are so old, I don't even remember what they mean.
It sounds like I should just make these casings available that I had formulated for the blends.
