What’s good Greenies and welcome to another tasty Tainted Tuesday from me, ThisBuds4You. I hope everyone had a great holiday, I smoked and had some spiked hot chocolate and kicked it with the family. Good times indeed. New Years is right around the corner now and this week we’re gonna kick up our sandwiches and add some dank ass pesto to the mix. You can also toss this pesto in with some pasta, however I’m not a big fan of pasta and I prefer my pesto on sandwiches. Paninis especially. If you happen to have a panini press, you’re gonna love this.
What We’ll Need:
- 1 tbsp walnuts
- 1 tbsp pinenuts (I don’t care for pinenuts or walnuts in my pesto, I leave them out)
- 1 tbsp chopped garlic
- 1-1/4 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
- 3 grams of kind bud, ground into a fine powder
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1/3 cup good quality olive oil
- 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Makes 1 cup of dank ass pesto
*Decarboxylation Step* Preheat oven to 215 degrees F. Spread powdered cannabis on a sheet of aluminum foil and bake for 90 minutes. It’s a long time I know, but the herb will be fully decarbed at the end of the process.
Place the walnuts, pinenuts, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process for 15 seconds. Add the basil leaves, powdered cannabis, salt, and pepper. With the processor running, slowly pour the olive oil into the bowl through the feed tube and process until the pesto is thoroughly pureed. Add the Parmesan and puree for a minute. Use right away or store the pesto in the refrigerator or freezer with a thin film of olive oil on top.
Note: Air is the enemy of pesto. For freezing, pack it in containers with a film of oil or plastic wrap directly on top with the air pressed out.
