Sometimes, the best eats are the ones you cook yourself. Whatever your reason is for not wanting to leave the house, here are some easy ideas for cheffing up a tasty edible or two from the comfort of your own casa.
Weed Ice Cream
Eating ice cream when you’re high is quite delicious, but what about eating ice cream that gets you high? All you need are some basic ingredients to mix together and you’ll be on your way to this cold, sweet and flavorful journey:
What you’ll need: 2 grams of deboxylated* cannabis, 500 milliliters of cream, 2 tablespoons of butter, 75 grams of sugar or sugar alternative, pinch of salt, 2 tablespoons of rum, 5 tablespoons of honey, and whatever flavors you want to add, like bananas, cookies, mint, etc.
How you’ll make it: Using a deep pot, cook cream on medium heat and stir in butter, salt and sugar. Once ingredients are melted and mixed, add in deboxylated cannabis and stir into the mix. Then add in any additional flavor adds (like cookies) and stir in rum and honey. Use a blender to whisk everything together so that it’s creamy. Turn off heat and pour mix into a freezable container. Once the mix has cooled, place it in the freezer for at least four hours before serving.
*Deboxylated cannabis: Preheat oven to 105 degrees C. Grind weed into tiny pieces and spread over a tray with baking paper on it. Once the oven is preheated, place tray in the oven for 45 minutes, and then remove and add to whatever you’re making.
You can add butter to almost anything, and with cannabutter, there’s no exception. Once it’s made, you can add it to your favorite carbs like bagels, bread and crackers, or swap it for butter in any recipe that calls for it.
What you’ll need: Butter and decarboxylated* cannabis.
