    I made scones for the first time today. I used a recipe on YouTube by the former chef to the Queen. They aren’t chalky day like most scones. Jam is Rainier cherry jam I made in June.

    Stoving Tobacco

    What are your thoughts on stoving tobacco? I understand that it is suppose to provide immediate aging benefits, but stops the aging process. If you are bulking buying, would it be beneficial to stove one tin while aging the others?
