Get The Gear
– ½ oz cannabis flower, decarbed
– Parchment paper, for the roll-out
– Glass dish or a sheet pan for the stage
Step 1: Decarboxylate to Elevate:
First things first, we gotta activate those sleepy cannabinoids. We’re gonna take it slow and low to get that THC alive and ready. So preheat that oven to 220°F and spread your choice buds on a baking sheet like you’re laying out a green carpet. You wanna crumble them nugs down to the small bits, ya know, keep it poppin’ like popcorn kernels, but keep it chunky. Don’t go grindin’ it all up, ’cause that’s just gonna bring in more of that plant taste to your mix, and we ain’t about that life for this. Bake the buds until it goes from fresh and bright to rich and mellow, about 45 minutes. Keep an eye on it, give it a little mix-a-roo every 10 minutes, and when it’s done, let it cool.
Step 2: Butter Me Up, Baby
Now it’s time to infuse that butter with some herbal love. We’re talking about a symphony of flavors simmering together. You wanna take it easy and let it all meld on a low flame. Adding water is the key to keep it chill, no scorching here, just smooth sailing. Get that wooden spoon in hand, stir up the magic while the kitchen fills up with those sweet, sweet terpenes. If you’re feeling that slow cooker vibe, set it and forget it on low.
What You Need:
– 1½ cups H2O
– 8 oz. clarified butter or your favorite oil, keeping it unsalted
– ½ oz. of that decarbed green
– Saucepan to bring the heat
– Wooden spoon for that mix-master touch
– Thermometer to keep it cool
– Cheesecloth or strainer, ’cause we like it smooth
Infuse Like a Boss:
Melt that butter, blend in the greens, and let it simmer. We’re aiming for a mellow infusion, so keep it just bubbling for about 4 hours, stirring slowly and frequently. When it’s time, strain that liquid gold and let it cool. This butter’s ready to roll, or you can stash it in the fridge or freezer.
Now for the grand finale, use this cannabutter to get your baked goods on! Stir it into brownies, cookies, or whatever your munchie-loving heart desires. And don’t stop at sweets; we’re all about that savory action too. Drizzle infused oil on a salad or add a dash to your soup and watch the ordinary turn extraordinary.
Remember, folks, this ain’t your grandma’s recipe, so measure your doses precisely. Start low, go slow, and keep it chill. Having a jar of infused butter or oil around, you’re always ready to make some incredible edibles. So put on your aprons, and let’s get baked!
