ganja butter

The most convenient way to use and store marijuana for cooking is to make ganja butter, which can be cut into pieces and Ziploc bagged for freezing and later used in cooking of all kinds.

 

1 lb. of organic butter, cut into chunks

 

1/2 ounce of marijuana, buzzed until fine in a coffee grinder.

 

Add the butter to a saucepan.  Once the butter has melted, add the marijuana.  Simmer for 30-45 minutes stirring every 5 minutes.  Let sit for 5 minutes then strain the pot butter (using cheesecloth) into a small bowl.  Once cool enough to handle, pick up the cheesecloth and squeeze out the juice.  Cover and refrigerate until semi-solid.

 

It will keep six months  in the freezer and you can use it just as you would use butter in recipes of all kinds, or enjoy it straight, in small amounts on toast, pancakes, and English muffins.  The possibilities are endless!
