For some of you, the holidays are a tough time - family bickering over politics, an extreme need for perfection, the days are shorter, and anxiety is at an all time high. There’s one way to loosen everyone up - cannabis infused Thanksgiving day foods. This is sure to make your Danksgiving dinner all the merrier with quite a few laughs. Of course you need to let your guests know that these recipes are infused with cannabis before serving them!
One thing to touch on before we go into the recipes - decarbing your flower.
Making sure you decarb your flower is important for both taste and potency. Decarboxylation is the process that converts the THCa (a nonreactive cannabinoid) to convert into THC (the cannabinoid that causes you to get high) naturally. When cannabis is smoked, the decarboxylation process occurs due to the heat of the flame. If one does not decarb their flower first, it will lead to a weak or inactive edible.
The best way to decarb the flower is by heating your oven to 245 degrees fahrenheit. Next line your baking sheet with parchment paper and place your flower on top. The parchment paper helps with the flower not sticking to the tray. Stick the tray in the oven for 30-40 minutes, shaking the tray every 10 minutes to ensure that all buds are equally cooked through. Once it is finished cooking make sure you let it cool before making the butter.
Once your flower is decarbed, it is time to make the butter!
Now that we have our cannabutter already made, it’s time to start cooking those Danksgiving day goodies! Although we will only have our recipes listed below, it’s easy to transfer cannabutter into any of your favorite Thanksgiving day creations. Personally, I love to throw a slab on some green beans as a side or into a cranberry sauce.
First up is a favorite side for many...cannabis infused mashed potatoes! This is always a crowd fav because it’s so easy to make and quite tasty too!
Recipe number two is a Thanksgiving staple, the delectable, creamy pumpkin pie with homemade whipped cream! Although there are a variety of Thanksgiving desserts, this cannabis filled pumpkin pie really takes Danksgiving to the next level!
My personal favorite side of Thanksgiving has always been stuffing, so what better way to eat it then infused with cannabis!
Note - you can also fill your turkey up with the stuffing mixture!
For our final recipe we have a cannabasted turkey to truly elevate your Danksgiving. This recipe can be modified based on your favorite Thanksgiving turkey recipe, so long as it uses butter to baste!
For all these recipes, please make sure that you let your guests know they are canna-filled before you serve them and have a very happy, merry Thanksgiving!
