When making Lebanese hash, growers leave plants on the field until they have nearly dried, at which time they will be a reddish-brown colour. They are then harvested and brought to a barn, where they are hung and dried much like tobacco. Dried buds are rubbed over fine silk cloth, producing a powder that is stored inside plastic bags, where it is “aged” until winter. in winter, it is pressed normally by hand into 100g, 200g or 1000g slabs. These slabs are the reason for the beautiful Lebanese hash.
