Cannabutter Flapjacks

To make Good Friday even better, I helped a mate mix up a batch of
cannabutter. He'd tracked down some Ghee from a market in the next town. Ghee is clarified butter, made by gently heating (buffalo) buttermilk so the impurities rise to the top and are removed. Because it is a kind of oil, Ghee is very pure and absorbs things better.

When we put the leaves (and marijuana seeds, buds, the lot!) my friend had grown in the blender, the smell in the kitchen was unmistakeable! It took days for the fug to clear.

The next day, we decided on flapjacks.

• 8oz of cannabutter
• 8oz brown sugar
• 8oz honey or golden syrup
• 1lb porridge oats

Put the butter, sugar and honey in a saucepan and heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved. Transfer the oat mixture to a greased cake tin and spread to about ¾ inch thick. Smooth the surface with the back of a spoon.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180C/Gas 4 for 15-20 minutes, until browning around the edges, but still slightly soft in the middle. Let cool in the tin, then turn out and cut into squares. Don't eat too many at once!

Very important small print disclaimer: (too late to be reading if you’re already eating!)

We want to make one thing clear stoners – the recipes reprinted within this blog are for decorative purposes only – ie: print them out, stick them on your wall and make your friends laugh. Although they DO appear on occasion to contain every one of the basic food groups, weed is in a category of its own, and not yet considered a mainstream dietary requirement. We do not condone irresponsible or illegal behaviour and the recipes are reproduced purely for our own amusement. But if YOU find them so amusing that you are powerless to resist trying them out on your friends – you have been warned! And by the way while we’re on the subject, we also take no responsibility whatsoever for your high (or lack of high) if you do try them. In other words - you are entirely responsible for any effects which may result in you or others - especially if your kitchen measurement mantra runs to, “Is this a teaspoon or a tablespoon?” Rock on.
