Every avid cannabis consumer and chef knows the quintessential secret behind potent edibles: the magic of cannabutter.
If you’re searching for a simplified and efficient way to produce top-notch cannabutter, you’re in for a treat. We’ve taken our 4-step guide and infused it with the prowess of Ongrok’s leading-edge tools.
Old-school method: Grinding your cannabis and baking it in the oven.
Step up with Ongrok: The Ongrok Decarboxylator Machine streamlines the process. By maintaining precise temperatures, it ensures that your cannabis unlocks its maximum potency. No guesswork, just consistent perfection. And bonus – it’s odor-free!
While your herbs are being activated is a good time to clarify your butter. Clarified butter is also called drawn butter. It’s important to use drawn or clarified butter for your weed recipes because hard, cold butter sticks can never go into the MagicalButter machine. Also, removing the watery whey and milk solids from melted butter yields a richer extract with improved consistency and flavor.
Simply melt your hard butter in a saucepan over low heat until it divides into three layers: a large layer of clarified golden butterfat sandwiched between two thin layers of white milkfat. Then, skim off and discard the foamy top layer, and slowly decant the yellow layer into a container, taking care to leave behind the water and whey in the bottom. That yellow butterfat is clarified butter, the starting point for making MagicalButter. The end product will turn to a healthy green tint, owing to the chlorophyll in the plant.
Any kind of unsalted butter you like is acceptable, though fancy Irish butter usually leads to a better infusion: Better butter has less water content, yielding more infusible butterfat.
Traditional Technique: Combine your decarboxylated cannabis with the melted butter in the saucepan, letting it simmer for a few hours. This requires regular stirring and a watchful eye to prevent burning.
Upgrade with Ongrok: With Ongrok’s Butter Maker, you’re introducing a game-changer into your kitchen. This nifty device handles the infusion process, ensuring an even mix and consistent temperature throughout. Plus, its stainless steel design makes it a sleek and stylish addition to your kitchen setup.
Pour the butter through a fine strainer or cheesecloth to separate the plant material from your now green-hued butter. Once strained, store in the refrigerator until solidified and it’s ready to use!
Cannabutter is the backbone of many delightful edibles. And while traditional methods have their charm, technology, like what Ongrok offers, serves up consistency and simplicity.
