Cooking with Marijuana
OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Many doctors agree that smoking is not the best delivery system for medical marijuana. Medical edibles have come a long way since the infamous pot brownies of the 1970's that were consumed with crunchy, awful-tasting leaves and stems. Aunt Sandy's Medical Marijuana Cookbook (Quick American Publishing-11/15/2010) is a collection of recipes by cooking teacher, Sandy Moriarty, who has been experimenting with, developing and improving marijuana edibles over the past decade.
The cookbook is upbeat retro and nostalgic in design and content, reminiscent of classic Betty Crocker-type comfort foods. Some of Sandy's favorites include mac & cheese, spicy Buffalo wings, blue cheese dip and scalloped potatoes.
The book visually demonstrates and reveals the "secret" process for creating the "magic ingredient," Sandy's 10x Cannabutter, which replaces the bitter "grass flavor" with a tasty, nutty butter flavor. It includes 49 easy-to-prepare, delicious dishes from her signature dessert, Blue Sky Lemon Bars, to the Dizzy Bird Turkey with Stuffing for a festive holiday dinner. The book updates some of the classics with low-calorie, vegetarian, vegan, sugar-free and gluten-free options.
Sandy says, "Controlling the potency is an experimental process I call 'titrating.' You basically cut food into small pieces (1-inch x 1-inch) and eat one every half hour. Each individual's potency level is different." In the book, the author teaches how potency can be adjusted by the amount of plant material used in the butter, oil or tincture, and how to adjust the strength of the butter and the serving sizes.
Aunt Sandy's cookbook arose from her popular cooking classes at Oaksterdam University in Oakland, California(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Fj3JwIV8jU), which has pioneered training for jobs in the booming marijuana industry. In just three years, Oaksterdam has trained more than 12,000 students from all over the country.
Fifteen states and the District of Columbia have now legalized the use of medical marijuana and another six are in the process. The American Medical Association has now recognized the medical value of marijuana and the federal government has provided medical marijuana to selected medical patients for many years.
