The small leaves of the oriental are impossible to put on one by may a I make as for Burley, cut the head and make air cured?


Les petites feuilles de l'oriental sont impossibles à enfiler une par une... puis-je faire comme pour le Burley, couper la tête et faire sécher à l'air ?

I air cure my oriental just fine. Less sweetness though. Didn't know about stalk curing, but i think it is fine.

I string individual leaves of small Orientals, for the lower leaves that mature. Then I cut the remainder of the stalk, and hang it. Both approaches do well either air-cured or sun-cured, but I think the sun-cured is a little better.
