    Does anyone here make their own chewing tobacco? No, not for me :nono: I am looking for a recipe that will produce something like "Redman" or even the little shredded stuff like skoal.

    If so, can you provide the recipe and do you also have some tobacco I could buy? :D

    LOL LOL!!!

    Okay, so I did try the chew when I was a little girl. Grandpa didn't tell me I wasn't supposed to swallow :(

    and then, as an adult, I tried skoal...the *gentleman* (I use that term loosely) enjoyed watching me trying to brush out the load of it that fell into my bra! I missed my lip. :shrug:

    I don't do that stuff...it's dangerous LOL

    I do like a good cigar now and then though. hehe

    Niki, I can't be of any help to you but I just had to say: A friend who raised tobacco in Tennessee years ago (and didn't use the stuff himself) told me that tobacco companies made chewing tobacco from what fell on the floor and that the restroom sweepings added flavor. I know he was kidding . . . .

    Thank you gentlemen!

    Mntmn, I had found that web site before I posted and was really hoping they didn't really want me to hollow out a log to make the stuff LOL I was truly hoping for a more do-able method for me to use.

    Obser, All I can say is *shudder*. I suppose I could throw some tobacco on my bathroom floor for a few days and then present my gift -- YUM! LOL

    ET1 SS, I am not really opposed to chewing or dipping, I am just not a talented spitter and it really would only provide entertainment to those who may be watching and I'm not sure I would find that enjoyable. I think I will stick with the occassional cigar or perhaps find a nice pipe ;)

    I seldom drink. But, when I do, I usually smoke a cigar, and sing 'Lucille', too.

    SusieM, would you comment on "homesteading" as it applies to France?

    As you are aware, Americans are not well informed about lifestyles elsewhere in the world. I, for one, would be interested in learning about homesteading in France.

    Susie, I'm afraid that a trip to France is a tad out of the budget right now, but I will work on that ;)

    Blufford, LOL, cute. Thanks for the link!

    My Grandma used to keep a pouch of tobacco hidden away in her dresser drawer. She would put a pinch back in her jaw,so no one would see it. She chewed like that for years ...after she quit smoking. I guess she needed the nicotine. :)
