Weckmann #44 small
These tiny pipes are not originally used for smoking, although they can be smoked. Mostly, they are used in the baking of the Weckmann confection popular in Germany in November. However, we have found these little 3″ clay pipes are perfect for testing new blends of tobacco or even other plants if permitted where you live.
This is what they look like when backed as part of the Weckman, a confection popular in the Catholic regions of Germany during the St. Martin’s Day feast.
Here’s a handy recipe if you want to try making the confection shown in the photo.
