A CBD-infused Thanksgiving dinner can take traditional and delicious holiday dishes to a new and magical experience.
Cannabis Dinner Etiquette
Before starting your multi-day prep for the meal, make sure that your friends and family know that there will be CBD-infused holiday fare on the dinner table. Don’t pressure hesitant family members to consume, but attempt to educate curious individuals.
Infused Cannabis Turkey
The Thanksgiving turkey is the quintessential holiday centerpiece. Its crispy, juicy, and tender meat complement savory stuffing and gravy. When making an infused cannabis turkey, you can use a standard turkey recipe that includes butter or oil. When basting the turkey, use olive oil mixed with 1 to 3 teaspoons of cannabis-infused oil or butter.
Canna-mashed potatoes are the perfect pairing to an herb-roasted turkey.
6 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
½ cup warm milk
1 to 3 tsp cannabis butter
¼ cup regular butter
¾ tsp salt
Dash of pepper
Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water
Cover and bring the water to boil
Cook for 20-25 minutes or until very tender
Add milk, cannabis butter, regular butter, salt, and pepper
Mash until light and fluffy
CBD Gravy (Meat Based)
Total cooking time: 15 mins
1/2 cup CBD butter (made using hemp CBD Flowers)
1 tsp ground black pepper
½ tsp Salt
2 tbsp fresh sage, chopped
1/2 cup flour (or gluten-free flour)
4 cups of turkey drippings from roasting pan (or sub for chicken/turkey stock)
Melt the CBD butter in a large saucepan over medium to high heat and then add the black pepper, salt and sage.
Next, slowly add the flour while whisking the mixture continuously.
Once the flour is fully incorporated, add the turkey drippings or stock. Whisk until all ingredients are fully integrated and the mixture is smooth.
Let the gravy cook for a couple of minutes, or until it achieves the desired consistency and thickness.
Pour over your Thanksgiving dinner and enjoy your CBD-infused dish!
