Welcome Cannabis and Edible/Infused food enthusiasts!
The awesome gentlemen at DC Weed World have allowed
me to have a column in this great magazine. Since we are so close to
Thanksgiving I believe my Dulce De Leche Sweet Potato Pie will be the
number hit at all of the holiday parties coming soon!


Being a catering chef in the city and working at a very busy Smithsonian my
days are always filled with unexpected occurrences and difficult
people so, its always nice to enjoy a home cooked meal and
occasionally a desert as well followed by a perfectly rolled joint.
The canna butter that’s recipe I have included in this article
can be infused and used in almost any dish you make at home from
scratch. My plan for these articles will be to educate you on how to
use canna butter and other oils we may use throughout in different
cooking techniques and creating dishes that are delicious and potent!


The Chefs recommendations for taking said edibles are to eat a small meal
before consuming any edible or otherwise the edible will absorb
through your body for its nutritional benefits and not take affect.


Hope your holiday season is a great one spent with Friends and Family
enjoying this beautiful plant.

Canna Butter Recipe Prep Time; 10 minutes Cook time: 2-3 hours


1 ounce of High Grade
Cannabis (picked off stem, not ground)


1 cup


1 lb butter unsalted
cut into cubes


Cheese cloth


Butcher’s Twine





Place the butter and water into a medium sized pot set the heat on medium
until the butter-water mixture comes to a light simmer.


While waiting for your liquids to heat, pick the cannabis of the stem and
place them over a sheet of the cheesecloth.


Pick the four corners of the cheesecloth cupping the picked cannabis into
a ball; tie the butchers twine around the cheesecloth enclosing all
of your nug; once this is done place into the water-butter mixture do
not let this boil just a light simmer.


Let your cannabis simmer on low for 2-3 hours either is fine depending on
time willing to invest.


Once done remove your sachet of cannabis and discard, pour the water
butter mixture and a container and cool in the refrigerator.


Let sit until butter has fully hardened then separate butter from water.

boil potatoes for 15-20 minutes or until tender; strain from water

While sweet potatoes are hot place the canna butter in the bowl and


let cool


Lower oven to 320 degrees; otherwise the canna butter will burn and lose
all thc potency during baking.

sweet potatoes bring water to a boil and cook for 15 minutes or until
sweet potato is tender.


In a small pot melt butter on high and cook until it starts to turn

when mashing potatoes) then add your dulce de leche to the potatoes
