by Christopher Wright
Who’s ready to eat? It seems like we start with Thanksgiving and eat ourselves through to the new year, so why not change things up a bit and add a few THC food recipes to your menu this Turkey Day? If they are a hit, you’ve already practiced for the rest of the holidays. We’ve scoured the edible weed food options and listed a handful of our favorite marijuana-infused recipes for the Thanksgiving holiday 2017…and beyond! Just make sure all your guests are over 21 and your food is clearly labeled.
Let’s start with the main course. Hard to believe you make THC infused turkey? Well you can! Check out this recipe from our friends at Eater and turn this year’s turkey into a cannabis lover’s dream~
- Start by pre-making the cannabutter rub. In a saucepan boil unsalted butter, water, a 1/4-ounce of ground marijuana
- Let it cool overnight in the refrigerator
- Create a marinade with another 1/4-ounce of weed using a few tablespoons of cannabutter, stock, maple syrup, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper
- Prep your turkey by rubbing it down in cannabutter, salt and pepper, and injecting it with marinade for extra thc infused goodness
- Roast and rest based on the specifics of your bird
Leafly has a great recipe for the creamiest of cannabis taters. Make sure you double it if you plan on having a large group as this one is sure to be a stoner crowd pleaser.
- 5 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, (cooked, mashed)
- 2 (3 ounce) packages cream cheese
