Cooking with weed really shouldn’t be too difficult provided you have top quality pot that you can turn into some of the best food around. Here at Hefs Kitchen we like to cook with Marijuana creating outdoor delicacies that are sure to capture the taste buds. Enjoy some of our best Marijuana recipes and you might find yourself trading your best weed pipe.
How to cook with weed
Like I said earlier you need to start with great pot in order to cook with great weed. There are a few steps that you need to do before you start cooking pot and that is to create the cannabis butter. Instead of eating a bunch of junk food when you’re stoned why not bake a bunch of brownies. These are simple to make. So make the butter first
Making Cannabis Butter
People like to call Cannabis Butter Cannabutter and if you wanted more information I suggest that you use that name as you’ll get some good recipes on how to make it. The way we make it at Hefs Kitchen is the following 7 steps:
You will need,
A large saucepan
A stir spoon
Sticks Of Butter (Its about 1lb. of butter to every ounce of weed so make sure you do the math).
Cheesecloth, and some elastics
A couple tupperware containers with lids
Bring a few cups of water to a boil on the stovetop, it doesn’t really matter how much water you use because in the end it will all be seperated, Just make sure the marijuana is always floating about 1 1/2 inches from the bottom of the pan.
When the water is at a boil place the butter in the pan, again it’s about 1lb. of butter, 4 sticks, to every ounce of marijuana, so if your using a half ounce of bud thats about 2 sticks of butter. Be sure not to let the butter burn, if it appears to be burning then let melt on a medium setting.
Now that the butter has melted you can now add the marijuana, Here I used about 5 grams of fresh nug and about 7 grams of vaped bud. Again make sure the stove is now on a low setting.
Stir occasionally, I tend to stir every time the mix starts bubbling.
I usually let the bud simmer for 3 hours, But you can always tell it’s done when the top of the mix turns from a really watery consistency to glossy and thick.
While letting the mix simmer, You are now going to need to get the cheesecloth strainer ready, which will also be used to store the cannabutter.
Take two sheets of cheese cloth and fold each one over so they each have two layers, place these over a tupperware container (with the lid off), and secure them there with elastics.
You are now ready to strain the marijuana out of the mix, place your tupperware containers with the cheesecloth lids in the sink and slowly pour the entire mix on top of the cheesecloth.
When the saucepan is empty carefully undo the elastic, pick up the cheesecloth from all four sides and squeeze all of the remaining butter out, the Marijuana at this point is useless.
Now place the lid on the tupperware and place it in the fridge to sit overnight, You need to do this so the water can seperare from the cannabutter, be patient.
Now that you have awakened in anticipation for your new treat, its time to seperate the waste water!
Take the lid off the tuperware and hold it upside down over the sink, place a dish in the sink to catch any cannabutter that may fall, squeeze two sides of the tupperware and the waste water will pour out, once all the water is gone your done! The cannabutter is ready to cook with.
If you do not wish to cook with it now, you can just place it back in the tupperware, place the lid back on and store it in the fridge.
And be careful, the high from eating “special edibles” is often considered much more intense then inhaling, lasting anywhere from 2-8 hours. Do not attempt to eat too many at first. And I wouldn’t recommend driving. Just chill out, and enjoy!
