How To Make Chewing Tobacco

More on how to make chewing tobacco, as well as how to grow and cure tobacco is in my booklet:

Mississipi Mike’s instructional video on this same topic has the additional bonus of featuring banjo playing:

Today I show you how to make chewing tobacco from your home grown tobacco plants. If you use tobacco, why not use organic tobacco from your home garden? This method of making chewing tobacco tastes delicious. This is not dip – it’s chew.

Note: the tobacco I used to make my chewing tobacco was a bit too dry and shredded somewhat small for a good “tooth.” I recommend starting with somewhat larger shreds with some more moisture in them for best results.
