Hey all, just woke up this morning with an idea.

This is an idea on how to make the sticky stuff that holds cigars together. I ve heard of using things like jelly honey wet flower my dad even uses a children's glue stick :/ "interesting"

Anyway you know when picking backy your hands get all sticky especially when handling the top part of the plants where the flowers are. Well I was thinking there must be some way to gather that sticky substance and use that for attaching outer cigar wrap.

What do you think?

That stickiness is caused by a mixture of tobacco alkaloids and carbohydrates. If you lick it off your finger (not recommended), you'll discover that it is quite bitter. Just mix up some fruit pectin. It lasts for many weeks in the fridge.

Being the tightwad that I am, I freeze my pectin mix and just use the defrost option to bring it back. I've had no problems, unless I forget to put it back in the freezer.
