Cooking with Cannabis – Dutch Weed Truffels

29 09 2009

We thought it would be nice to give you guys some insights into “dutch cooking”. The original chocolate truffels are from Belgium, but are well-known in Holland. This video shows you how to make the “Dutch” version of these delicious chocolate truffels.

This Dutch chef is called “baard” (beard) and he has a whole range of videos where he explains how to make lots of different recipes with weed. The video below is subtitled in English so everyone can enjoy “bakken met baard” (cooking with beard).

Enjoy!





Cooking with Marijuana – Cannabis Butter

25 02 2009

As our last post on cooking with Marijuana is very popular we have another recipe for you. As you might know eating marijuana is not only healthier then smoking, it is also more efficient.

Anyway, the recipe below comes from a little website called thestonerscookbook.com a site which clearly is a good initiative but can use a bit more content. So if you have a nice recipe that you like to make yourself be sure to register and upload your recipe here.

Making Cannabis Butter

– 250 gram of butter
– 2 litre of boiling water
– 30 gram of course dry shake (aka trim leaf)

Cannabis butter is the main ingredient for most recipes with cannabis and IMO the best way of using cannabis in dishes.

Bring your water to a rolling boil, then put a small amount of butter in the water. Quickly, the butter melts, and mixes in with the water because the whole mixture is at a rolling boil.
Then put the grass in and boil it. (Of course, you will need to seperate all of the seeds first so you can plant them in the nearby park.) Now all the grass is riling around with the water and butter, and get this: The cannabinoids dissolve into the butter, while most of the nasty flavours and gook dissolve into the water. You need to stir the stuff regularly. After cooking the grass like this for a while (say, half an hour), your kitchen will really smell incriminating. Strain out the spent plant matter, squeeze all the juice out of it, and put the liquid in the fridge.

A few hours later, the mixture is cool enough that the cannabutter has solidified on the surface. It looks kind of scummy, but its just enchanted butter. Scoop it out and retain it in a bowl or a jar. The grass-nasty water is thrown out.

Now you can use the butter in any kind of normal recipe. Just use your imagination or your grandmothers cooking book.

PS. Maybe it is smart to start with more butter the first time you try this, so you are sure the dose is not to strong.





Cooking with Cannabis

29 01 2009

cooking-with-marijuanaAs you might know next to smoking weed you can also eat it. Eating weed can get you even more stoned then by smoking it and it is presumably more healthy for you. We are not talking about the standard hash brownies and the like as these are probably not that healthy (but they sure do taste good :) and they are a bit standard.

What you might not know is that weed seeds (hemp seeds) are very, very healthy for you and will not get you stoned. Be sure to buy hemp seeds if you want to cook with them, because they are way cheaper then proper cannabis seeds.

This site has a few delicious recipes for cooking with hemp seeds. We’ve selected two of them that look really nice and healthy.

FALAFEL GOODFORYA

* 2 Cups fresh ground hempseeds
* 1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
* 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
* 1 Tbsp minced garlic
* 2 Tbsp chopped parsley
* 1/4 cup good olive oil
* 1 beaten egg (optional)
* water (1-3 Tbsp)
* flour, salt, pepper
* Louisiana Hot Sauce
* oil for frying

Mix hemp seeds with peppers, onion, garlic, parsley and toss in olive oil. Add hot sauce to taste. Add egg and/or water until mixture is wet enough to shape into balls. Squeeze together. The egg may keep mixture together better but is not necessary. Roll in flour with salt and pepper to taste. Heat 2 Tbsp oil in heavy skillet over medium heat. Gently brown hempseed balls on all sides for 8 to ten minutes. Serve alone with dip, or in pita pockets with garlic yogurt sauce and a little sliced onion, cucumber, lettuce.
