Grizzly chewing tobaccos can be made in just a few steps, and can be enjoyed at home in just minutes.
The best way to make them is to cut up a handful and add them to your favourite flavoured chewing gum.
There are several ways to do this.
Read on to find out how to make some of the most popular and favourite flavours of the beloved chewers.
How to prepare the ingredients for your own chewers Here are the steps you’ll need to take to prepare your own homemade bear gum.
How To Make Grizzly Tobacco Basket: This is the basic recipe for your first batch of homemade bear tobacco.
The flavoured gum will be thick and slightly sweet.
You’ll need: 2 cups of water 3 cups of sugar 2 tbsp of vanilla extract 2 tsp of salt, plus extra for rolling the tobacco out into a cone The first step is to soak your tobacco in the boiling water.
Put the tin and the sugar into a saucepan and heat on medium-low heat.
The sugar will dissolve, and the tobacco will soften a bit.
The mixture will eventually thicken to the consistency of a jelly roll.
Remove the tin from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
Turn the heat off and let it cool down.
Once the gum is cool, take it out of the saucepan, and place the rolled tobacco in a bowl.
This will be your base for making the next batch.
Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix until the mixture is completely mixed.
Heat up your oven to 160C/390F and bake the mixture for 20 minutes, or until it’s golden and crispy.
This takes around 30 seconds.
Remove from the oven and cool in the tin.
To make your second batch of gum, add the remaining 3 cups and stir it until the gum starts to turn a deep golden colour.
Allow to cool completely before cutting up the tobacco.
If you’re making more than one batch, put them in the same bowl as the first batch, so they can all be made at the same time.
The flavours will be the same but the consistency will be a little different.
For a thicker and more complex flavour, add more sugar and vanilla.
The next step is for you to put the tobacco in your oven.
It should be placed on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake at 160C for around 20 minutes.
Then, it should start to get golden and crunchy.
Remove it from the tray and place on a wire rack to cool down a bit, then cut it into cones.
You can leave the wrapper to soften, but you can also make your way through it, and just use your fingers to flatten it out into small chunks.
The taste will be similar to the first one.
These are great as a snack, or just as a treat.
