2 cups turbinado sugar
½ tsp sea salt
2 cups heavy cream
1 ¾ cups light corn syrup
½ cup potent marijuana
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp dark rum
2 cups pecan pieces.
This is the exact ingredient list,, from The Marijuana Food Handbook, by Bill Drake. My friend omitted the last 2 ingredients, and scaled down by half. Here is the formula
1 In a large saucepan over med-hi heat, bring a mixture of the sugar, salt, 1 cup of the cream,corn syrup, and butter to a boil.(remember, he only did half of this) Boil slowly for 10 minutes, stirring constantly, not scraping the bottom of the pan.(here I omit the part where he says you can put unused buds in this mixture during the 10 minutes…fuck that
2 Dribble in the remaining cream continuing to stir. Add the cream slowly enough not to disturb the boiling.
3 Continue to cook until a little of the mixture, when plopped into cold water and rolled between the thumb and index finger, forms a firm but not hard ball
4When the firm ball stage is reached, remove from the heat and stir in vanilla. Pour out onto a buttered cookie sheet with sides and let cool. Cut into bite size pieces and wrap individually in wax paper.
5 look out, this is nearly irresistible. (these were the first words of the recipe.)
This is no hype-these are the tastiest edibles on earth. Cooking a bit longer makes it harder but toffee-like. The sugar is a vehicle to shuttle the THC to the blood-then the brain, like it does with nutrients. DO NOT OVERDO IT.
AFOAF used ½ the recipe. His ¼ lb of butter(1 stick) was made with1 oz (of sugary trim) and he estimates 30 delicious medicinal candies.
