    My wife ran across a box the other day that contained a large Edgeworth Sliced Tobacco tin. There is tobacco in it. I am wondering if there is a way to salvage this tobacco.

    The tin was not sealed, and by no means air tight. The tobacco has a pleasant smell, but seems dry. Could I put this in a jar with and re-moisten it? I'd like to be able to smoke it.

    Not sure if it would be true to taste after the years... But I usually put dry tobacco in a bowl with a wide opening. Cover the opening with a paper towel dampened with distilled water. Never have bad results.

    This tobacco is what a close family friend always smoked at the family fishing lodge. She also has tons of empty tins that she collected over the years.

    It was a stellar blend . It's about all i smoked for years . I was lucky enough to score some [rr] from Moo awhile back .... I horde it .... it's the only blend I wont share ... mine . I was a ready rubbed smoker though the sliced was awesome . I sure would try to rehumidify it .... good luck . Let us know how it turns out

    I have a tin of the slices I bought back in 2002. I never tried it. Now I don't know if I want to because I'll be sad if I love it.

    It certainly isn't getting better. Suck the stuff down or send it to me c/o the Mothership. For the good of all.

    Well, I think I am going to see about getting some moisture in it one of these days and see what happens. I'll be sure to let you all know how it goes.

    Mostly burley - time is the enemy, relatively speaking, especially if seals are already cracked. My methodology includes a well wrung out multi-folded towel over a small bowl for 12-48 hours. If you overshoot, remove the towel for a few hours; tried everything - this is it.

    If you got it from the old fishing lodge, be a little careful. I used to use old tins to carry a few worms in peat and coffee grounds when we went out for the day. I doubt adding moisture would help that smoke any better.

    As long as you're sure it is tobacco, freshen it up and give it a try.

    Yep, it is tobacco. They only used flies and lures out there. :D

    Mr Moo, thanks for the pointer, that looks like a winner!
