Well folks, another week of sub zero temps lie ahead. I'll never get those rabbits dressed at this rate.................

So, to keep things toasty, I figured, why not do some Virginia stoving?

I've got stuff ready, now to wait until morning and mind the oven.....

We'll see..........

I'm thinking a nice tarragon reduction in a 1988 Maryhill Cabernet topping.

OK........

Got the Leaf nice and black. Maybe close to crunchy. So, A couple of spritzes of distilled water and a good tossing got it closer to case, but I like it pretty dry for storage and blending. I rarely smoke it straight unless testing for quality. This batch didn't end up as caramel smooth tasting as the last one, but I used a sweet bright leaf VA from Canada. Still getting a citrus linger on the exhale. No matter, I will use it.

Put together an "oriental blend" using some of that with Izmir and Yenidji, equal parts, and some of the Carolina flake I use in my VaPer blend. Heated, rolled and pressed with one atmosphere of pressure... We shall see in a month...

What kind of Va (cased at all?), and what was the time/temp?

No casing, no water, spread out the precut ribbon in a pyrex pan, popped it in the oven at 220 for a while, (hours?). Basically kept an eye on it until it turned from yellow to black and crunchy... Some days it takes longer than others.
