d. It was easy to grow in an open sunny field, the flowers were really pretty too. Since I couldn't find out at the time how to make chew I just dried the leaves and basically wasted all of them. Chalk it up to a learning experience.

In case anyone wants to know- I started seeds in flats indoors then moved them outside, same as tomatoes or peppers.

~Black.Dog~ I have thought about trying to grow tobacco but never have gotten that far down my list of new things to kearn.
I've never smoked but have had a 30 some year tobacco habit that I picked up when I first got into construction.
I know that nothing I would grow and cure would come out like the wintergreen dip I've used for decades but I'm not opposed to good old leaf tobacco like Levi Garret or plugs like Days O' Work plug that I had originally started with.
Not that any of it is good for me, but it would be nice to know that it wouldn't be loaded with chemicals like what I currently use.
I'll be watching this thread with interest.

Stob Where I grew up was tobacco country, and I used to help the local farmers harvesting. Damn hard work by the way. Anyway, one of the farmers would go along and pick the brown leaves at the bottom of the stalk and just ball it up and chew it. Hard man he was.

hanzy4200 I grow tobacco and sell the seeds. I've been working on some methods and recipes. My first attempts have gone quite well. At this stage in testing I have taken 2-3 large slightly humidified leaves, removed the mid-rib, and chopped them into 1/4" strips. I then add into a bowl with the leaf, a drizzle of maple syrup, maybe a tablespoon, a shake of sea salt, and a small bit, maybe a 1/8 tsp of vegetable glycerin. Mix it up well. I then scoop it into a ziplock bag, and let it sit for at least 48 hours. Then cut most of the excess bag off, and squeeze out any unabsorbed liquid. That's it. The longer you let the mixture meld, the better the flavor.

roy d I am very old, when I was a kid 70 years ago my unckle made his own.
we had a lot of peach trees and honey bees. The bees collected juice from peaches on the ground and made honey that had a peach flavor. He cut down hickory trees and drilled 1 inch holes, packed it full of tobacco that had been
soaked in peach honey. stored it in the corn crib where rats could not get to
it. He cut off blocks about 8 inches long, split them and removed the tobacco
plugs. he sold some, got put into jail. The split hickory logs made excelent
fire wood for the wood cook stove my grand mother used. We always had plenty of wood

catlady12 Uncle used to soak his leaves overnight in juice then add to smokehouse to dry. It was then crumbled for his pipe.

He had a special 'backer smokehouse so it didn't get on the meats.

Any recipes for homemade chewing tobacco?

Does anyone have a good recipe for chewing tobacco, other then the one with molasses? I tried it with molasses and it was way to sweet and sticky and got moldy to soon, gross!

I would like to make cherry chewing tobacco, but any will do.
