When I make Cavendish, The cassing is done at the same time. I use an electric dutch oven with a basket inside. I load the basket with the leaf, and put water in the base. I run it at 200 deg to 220 deg. for up to three or so weeks. The leaf will turn very dark, to black on some leaf. I also add real vanilla to some Cavendish. Good write up, thanks for the post. Mad-

+1 mad...

That sound like a fine idea.
IMO.

And, that dutch oven with the basket full of cavendish-on-the-make could be inside a curing kiln in addition to the drbob crockpot!
