I wanted to post a new flavoring recipe I have created. :P

This recipe can easily be modified to fit a larger scale.
I used a 4 ounce spray bottle with this recipe.
1/2 tsp of honey
1/2 tsp of table sugar
1/2 tsp of brown sugar
1/4 tsp of sulfur free molasses
2 tbsp of amaretto
1/2 tsp of glycerin "optional"
a small, "small" pinch of Diammonium phosphate "this will give you a safe percentage of freebase nicotine"
a small pinch of instant coffee
add all the ingredients to the bottle and top the bottle off with hot water and shake well.
*Note "diammonium phosphate is sold as yeast nutrient commonly used in wine brewing, most brew shops carry it"

It is best to spray a tray of tobacco and toast it in the oven at 250 F for 8 or so minutes. Then re-spray the tobacco to rehydrate so its not crispy.

I would love feedback from anyone who tries this recipe.

What is it that you do with this tobacco? Smoke, chew, snuff?

Thanks for posting the sauce recipe, tn!
it looks like a good one.

to get more or less the same effect, I buy a lb of red river tobacco every once and a while and blend a percentage of it with the homegrown baccy to get all those components mentioned in your recipe.

...better living through chemistry... lol

best

I tried this recipe, basically. The differences are I omitted these ingredients due to unavailablility (in my house at the time):

1/4 tsp of sulfur free molasses
2 tbsp of amaretto
1/2 tsp of glycerin "optional"

I did get myself some DAP to add though. I shredded a bunch of Canadian flue cured virginia and about 1/4 as much American VFC. I was absolutely blown away by what this did to the tobacco. It basically now tastes a lot like a Du Muarier, my old brand. The nicotine hit is no different than a commercial smoke. Adding the flavour was the easy part, getting it shredded to the right consistency is proving to be quite difficult. I need to invest in a better shredder. I'll be flavouring all of my tobacco this way until I find a better recipe, if that even happens.

Thanks for sharing this!
