I'm trying to make tasty interesting food, not make people sick.
Any advice or insight is appreciated. Thanks.
Probably there is a process to ""de-nicotize"" (I'm going creative here) the leafs, but I'm not sure if that will preserve the taste and I'm not sure most people will be fine ingesting nicotine to suddenly, 1 week later, start to appreciate the company of heavy smokers in cafes. Just a thought I have to say but nicotine is highly addictive, only smokers would be up to it.
Is not like these "siblings" have significant amounts of nicotine, but apart from the addictive element on the OP recipe, the source of the leaves is important to consider as most leaves contain other carcinogenics as far as I know.
