Trick or Treat Yo' Self

 

The spookiest season is upon us! Here are a few Halloween inspired recipes to enhance your evening watching old horror flicks. We have three base infusions to create, one for each of our Halloween-Canna treat recipes.

 

Before you start cooking, you will need to purchase your own oil and/or flower (which can be used to make your own infused oil), depending on which recipe you’d like to try. The three Halloween recipes we will be making are apple cider (that uses canna-simple syrup), cannabis-infused pumpkin seeds (with cannabis oil), and a movie night popcorn mix (using canna-butter).

 

Cooking with cannabis can seem intimidating, but our cannabis-infused recipes are easy to follow, don’t require much time, and taste devilishly delicious!  

 

Safety When Incorporating Cannabis

 

  • Ingesting cannabis can have delayed effects (30 minutes to 1-2 hours) when compared to smoking or vaping (the effects can also last longer as well). Unfortunately, this delay can lead to overconsumption because people think the edibles aren’t working, and this can result in very potent and unwanted effects. Less is best!
  • Remember: Start low and go slow, especially if you are new to edibles.
  • When storing your finished, infused recipes, or other cannabis products in your home, ensure that they are kept safe and out of reach from children and pets. Homemade edibles and certain oil products may be mistaken for each other and accidentally consumed; to avoid this possibility, always keep your products in safe containers and properly labelled.
  • Store your cannabis oils and edibles properly to ensure they last as long as possible.

    Apple Cider

    A warm and spicy drink for those chilly, rainy evenings in. Homemade apple cider created in a crock-pot is simple, fresh, and will make your house smell like fall. You can pick the type of apples you enjoy most, or a variety of types for a more colourful concoction. In the dark and spooky nights leading up to Halloween, always remember to look on the bright “cider” of life!

    Ingredients:

    • 10 chopped apples
    • 2 oranges (unpeeled if you want the cider to be less tart)
    • 2-4 cinnamon sticks (depending on how spicy you want it)
    • 1 tablespoon of whole cloves
    • ¼ teaspoon of ground nutmeg
    • 2 tablespoons of canna-simple syrup (start with a low dosage, you can always incorporate more to the completed recipe)
    • A few shavings of lemon zest
    • Optional, additional sweetener: 1/4 cup of maple syrup
    • Approximately 14 cups of water

      Optional, additional seasoning options: 

      • 1 teaspoon allspice and/or 1 tablespoon of fresh ginger and/or 2 whole star anise
      • A bag (or two) of your favourite type of chai tea (instead of spices) for an extra kick!

        Equipment:

        • Strainer
        • Wooden spoon or potato masher
        • Mesh strainer or cheese/nut milk cloth
        • Large stovetop pot or slow cooker

          • Spooky halloween cups

            Instructions for stovetop:

            1. Add all ingredients into your large stovetop pot. Cover the ingredients with water. Leave an inch or two of space from the water line to the top of the pot.
            2. Turn the heat to high on the stove until the water starts to simmer. Reduce heat to a medium-low, cover with a lid and let the ingredients simmer for 2 hours, or until apples are completely soft.
            3. “Smash” your apples and oranges against the side of the pot with a wooden spoon or potato masher to release more flavours. Cover the ingredients with the lid and let simmer for 1 more hour.
            4. With the straining device of your choice, strain the solids from the liquids (removing apples, oranges, rinds, spices, and/or tea bags). Discard or compost the removed solids. The straining process takes a few minutes.
            5. Keep warm and prep for serving with (fresh) extra orange slices, lemon zest, and cinnamon sticks. Scoop and serve. “Bone”-appetit!

                Instructions for slow cooker:

                1. Add all ingredients into your large (preferably 6-quart) slow cooker. Cover the ingredients with water. Leave an inch or two of space from the water line to the top of the slow cooker.
                2. Cover and simmer the ingredients on the low setting for 6 to 8 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours, or until apples are completely soft.
                3. “Smash” your apples and oranges against the side of the pot with a  wooden spoon or potato masher to release more flavours. Cover the ingredients with the lid and let simmer on high for 30 minutes.
                4. With the straining device of your choice, strain the solids from the liquids (removing apples, oranges, rinds, spices, and/or tea bags). Discard or compost the removed solids. The straining process takes a few minutes.
                5. Keep warm and prep for serving with (fresh) extra orange slices, lemon zest, and cinnamon sticks. Scoop and serve: it’s “spook”-tacular.

                  Haunted Pumpkin Seeds

                  If you’ve carved your spooky design into a pumpkin, why not use the fresh seeds to make a healthy, crunchy snack? It may seem daunting to make your own roasted pumpkin seeds from scratch, but the steps below are quite quick and easy to follow. Adding cannabis oils with your preferred spices will help to enhance the “gourd”-ness of the recipe!

                  Prep Time: 20-30 Minutes

                  Cook Time: 30-45 Minutes 

                  Total Time: 50-75 Minutes

                   

                  Ingredients:

                  • 1 medium to large pumpkin (remove all insides)
                  • 1-2 tablespoons of cannabis oil (remember to start low and go slow)
                  • Teaspoon of salt

                    Seasoning options:

                    • Basic seasoning: salt or seasoning salt, and pepper
                    • Savoury option: garlic salt, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, lemon pepper, or sea salt. 
                    • Fall Flavours: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice (a dash of ground cloves)
                    • Give it a kick: cayenne pepper, onion salt, cajun seasoning, and a dash of hot sauce

                      Note: There are countless spice options to work with; these are simply a few options that you can try!

                       

                      Equipment:

                      • Large cookie sheet
                      • Colander
                      • Large pot
                      • Large, strong, metal spoon
                      • Medium sharp knife
                      • Clean dish towel or small towel

                        Optional, additional serving options:

                        • Spooky halloween serving bowl

                          Instructions for pumpkin seed prep:

                          1. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut open the top of your pumpkin, creating a circle around the stem. Once the circle is complete, pull up on the stem to reveal the insides.
                          2. Use your metal spoon to scrape out the insides of the pumpkin, removing all seeds, chunks, and strings.
                          3. Using a colander and running water, start to separate the seeds from everything else as best you can. Continue until the seeds are almost completely cleaned.
                          4. Separate the seeds from the rest. Start a few cups of water boiling, and add in the teaspoon of salt. Bring the seeds to a boil in the salt water, and then let simmer for 10 minutes. 
                          5. Drain the seeds in the clean colander, and let them dry off on a clean towel. 

                           

                          Instructions for stovetop:

                          1. Preheat your oven to 300F degrees. Spread the now dry seeds evenly onto the cookie sheet.
                          2. Drizzle the seeds with your cannabis oil and toss them with a spoon until they are evenly coated.
                          3. Season the seeds with your choice of spices.
                          4. Roast the seeds until they are golden brown. This usually takes between 30-45 minutes, depending on how crispy you want them. Make sure you check on them and stir the seeds every 5-10 minutes to avoid scorching one side.
                          5. Let cool and have a “gourd” time!

                                      Instructions for popcorn:

                                      1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add 3 popcorn kernels to the oil.
                                      2. Cover the 3 kernels and wait until they pop.
                                      3. Once the 3 kernels have popped, remove them and add the rest of the uncooked kernels to the heated oil.
                                      4. Cover the kernels and remove from the hot stove top element for 30 seconds (you can set them on another, unused stove element while you time it).
                                      5. Put the pot back onto heated element. Shake the kernels occasionally, until the popcorn starts to pop rapidly. 
                                      6. After approximately 2 minutes, the popping will start to slow down. Turn the heat off, and remove the pot’s lid to let the steam out. Place the pot onto an unused element.
                                      7. In the microwave, heat the butter for 20 seconds. Remove (add the honey in now if you choose to), stir, and put back into the microwave for another 10-20 seconds until the butter is completely melted.
                                      8. Pour half of the butter over your popcorn, sprinkle with half your salt, and lightly toss with a large spoon in the pot if you are using the honey, otherwise, toss to coat in a bowl.
                                      9. Add the remainder of your butter and salt to the popcorn, and slowly add in your choice of seasonings/spices to taste.
                                      10. Transfer the popcorn to a large serving bowl, and add in the sweet or crunchy toppings of your choice. “Boo”-yeah!

                                        Conclusion

                                        Infusing cannabis to your recipes makes consumption more enjoyable, and allows you to be creative. Remember that your infusions aren’t limited to sweets and snacks: try incorporating your canna-butter to vegetables while you sauté them, and add them into a “boo”-rito for Halloween. You can even mix a few tablespoons of cannabis oil to a tomato sauce for a fresh take on a scary “pizzaAAaaHhhHh” or “ghoul-ash” for dinner! Enjoy your creations this Halloween: be smart, be safe, and remember to “creep” it real!

                                         

                                        While cannabis oil works well for some patients, it may not be for everyone. Depending on an individual's endocannabinoid system, oils may work well for some patients, but it may not be for all.
