Have some Fun with these, Cooking with Canna*is



Basic principles of cooking with p*t:
Vital Extractions
1.Should use dry p*t, the stronger the better
2.P*t is not water soluble
3.P*t is soluble in ETHANOL
4.P*t is soluble in FAT

One basic ingredient in many thousands of foods is fat. Anything with butter, milk, cream, eggs, cheese, and a lot more contains plenty of fat. Lucky for us, p*t is fat soluble. This means that we can easily transfer the VITAL EXTRACTIONS of p*t into fat, and use that fat in any recipe calling for fat. More importantly, once we have the VITAL EXTRACTIONS in some form of fat, all we need do is go to the supermarket and look for a box of cakes/cupcakes/brownies/cookies/whatever. Or Rice-A-Riso,. Simply follow package instructions, using the appropriate VITAL EXTRACTION when called for.

Making the VITAL EXTRACTIONS

All you need do is soak some dry p*t in some source of fat. The easiest to use are butter/margarine and ethanol (grain alcohol, the alcohol it's relatively safe to drink).

Butter and/or margarine Put a pound of butter into a pot.
Put the p*t on the stove, with the heat very low. Better yet, melt the pound of butter in a double boiler. Heat the butter only until it's melted. Never let get hot, because butter burns easily. Margarine is a little more forgiving. Anyway, the point being that you don't need to get the butter/marg hot, just liquefied.
With this accomplished, mince up an ounce or two of dried p*t into a bowl. ( food processor works well, you can include seeds and stems) Pour this into the pan of melted butter/margarine. There should be enough melted butter/margarine to completly cover the minced p*t.
Stir slowly, let sit, stir, let sit, etc. in the melted state for 20 to 30 minutes. Then, turn off the heat, strain out the vegetable matter (a screen strainer is the best, but cheese cloth works well, too), and save the butter/marg in a bowl and refrigerate.
You now have a VITAL EXTRACTION. You can use this vital extraction in any pre-packaged wonder food calling for butter or oil. If you're really lazy, you can just eat it on biscuits. (does wonders on sandwiches too)
Oil Very simple. You can use any oil you want, vegetable oil of any kind. I use olive oil. Get a large bottle, with one of those white plastic caps that try to prevent the oil from splashing or dripping. Pour out a fourth of the oil. Fill the bottle with dried p*t. There should be just enough oil to submerge the p*t. Let this sit out for a day, then you've got a VITAL EXTRACTION. Use this oil in any recipe calling for oil. Better not to fry with it. Refrigerate unused p*t-oil. I usually make a huge batch of p*t olive oil, and it lasts through a many batches of brownies, cupcakes, pasta sauces, muffins, etc.
I lied. I'm going to give you a simple recipe. This is my most frequently prepared p*t food. 1. Brownie mix (calls for a 1/4 (maybe 1/3? whatever) cup oil
2.Twice as much pot olive oil
3.Follow package instructions, adding twice as much pot oil as recipe calls for.
4.Eat a couple brownies
5.Anhilation will occur within two hours. Usually takes between one and two hours for blood chemical levels to rise.
6.Effects will end between 2 and 4 or more hours.


Here are a few recipes from our very own columnist, Chef Ra, the tounge shaman of the fine green.. enjoy!!!

MAJOON

Majoon, in some provinces of India, is a potent jam which maybe spread on crackers, used as a pastry filling or eaten by the fingerful. One way to prepare it is:
