Barbecue Sauce

 

Barbecue sauce comes in so many different variations. They even come in different colors and textures. Here, we give you a recipe for one that’s closer to its Southern original which is also extremely easy to make. Of course, the best use for this sauce is for grilling meats but you can also use it to slather on quesadillas, make barbecue cauliflower bites, pulled pork sandwiches, and so much more.

 

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup cannabis oil

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 cups ketchup

  • 5 tbsp. sugar

  • 5 tbsp. light brown sugar

  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

  • ½ tbsp ground mustard powder

  • ½ tbsp onion powder

  • ½ tbsp ground black pepper

 

 

Process:

 

  1. Mix all the ingredients into a saucepan.

  2. Place the heat on low, and gently simmer it for 15-20 minutes.

  3. Pour into a bowl and use as a dip or marinade.

 

 

Buffalo Wings

 

Deep fried or air fried buffalo wings are always a crowd pleaser among both kids and adults. These classic American appetizers have been around for a long time but they will always be a classic. Heck, even if they’re appetizers, nothing’s stopping anyone from making an entire meal out of buffalo wings!

 

Ingredients:

 

 

Process:

 

  1. If you will be deep frying, heat the oil in a large sauce pan or deep fryer until it reaches 190C.

  2. Add all the ingredients except the wings, cannabutter, regular butter, hot sauce and garlic powder, together in a large bowl and use a spatula or your hands to combine everything well.

  3. Use either tongs or your hands to dip the wings in the mixture for a light coating. Leave it on a wire rack and allow it to rest for 5 minutes.

  4. Dip the wings once again into the oil for around 10 minutes or once it reaches a golden brown color. You may want to fry the wings in batches to avoid crowding the fryer which will reduce chances of evenly cooking the meat.

  5. In a separate skillet, melt the cannabutter and the regular butter on low heat. Add in the hot sauce and garlic powder as well as a sprinkling of more black pepper to taste. Mix until well combined, then add the chicken wings to thoroughly coat in this sauce.

  6. Serve immediately.

 

 

Note: If you intend to air fry the chicken wings, follow the same process but without dipping the chicken in oil – place it in the air fryer at 180C instead.

 

Deviled Eggs

 

A party isn’t complete without deviled eggs, a popular finger food that’s oozing with decadence. But it’s also extremely easy to make even if it’s lit with a cannabis infusion! Deviled eggs are also perfect for game day or when you have guests arriving at home last-minute – they’re quick AND delightful!

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 10 large eggs

  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • 1 pinch of baking soda

  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard

  • 1 ½ tsp cannabis oil

  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

  • 2 anchovy fillets, minced

  • Horseradish

  • Smoked paprika to sprinkle

 

Process:

 

  1. Put cold water into a large pot that can fill all the eggs.

  2. Add the eggs then the baking soda and allow the water to come to a boil. Let it boil for 1 minute then turn off the heat.

  3. Cover the pot and allow it to sit for 8 minutes.

  4. Place the eggs into a bowl filled with ice for 2-4 minutes and proceed to peeling them.

  5. Cut the eggs into half, lengthwise.

  6. Put the yolks into a separate bowl while the whites are on a serving tray.

  7. In the bowl with yolks, add in the mayonnaise, mustard, cannabis oil, pepper, and anchovies. Mix until well incorporated. Taste and season as needed.

  8. Fill up a pastry bag or a big Ziplock bag, with the corner trimmed off. Pipe the filling into the cooked egg whites.

  9. Place a dollop of horseradish then sprinkle paprika.

 

Serve and enjoy!

 

Hummus

 

Another classic party favorite: hummus! This Middle Eastern dish has worn hearts all over the globe for its deliciousness and sheer versatility. Now it’s made even better with a cannabis infusion!

 

Ingredients:

 

  • ¼ cup cannabis infused olive oil

  • ¼ cup tahini

  • ¼ cup lemon juice

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 1 15-ounce can of chickpeas, drained then rinsed

  • 2 tbsp water

  • ½ cup ground cumin

  • Salt and pepper

 

Process:

 

  1. Blend the tahini and lemon juice in a food processor.

  2. Toss in the chickpeas, cannabis oil, cumin, garlic, and water. Blend until it reaches a smooth consistency. Add water if needed.

  3. Taste and season as needed.

 

Serve the hummus with fresh vegetables (carrots, cucumbers), chips, or pita bread.
