Hey stoners! So, I have been playing with improving my lecithin butter recipe for the last few years and have managed to really break some ground. My sun-oven-butter has be he most potent, kindest shit imaginable. An on the New-Age side, its fucking SUN Extracted, talk about Aztec sun-swallowing, that shit's gotta be good for you. I feel a obligation to share this. It could really help people that need medicine and don't have enough herb or cash to pay for all their edibles. I heard stories when I was in college of legendary pressure-cooker cookies from a Mendo-born friend. And the more I read, the more peoples advice seemed to by typical he-said she-said bullshit like I see in beer-making. No one has the fucking balls to try for themselves to understand a point/flaw. I read that once the herbal oils have bonded to the oil of choice and the water, that their evaporation point changes, as well as who fucking cares if its sealed in a mason jar right? It will re-condense. Ok. it works. Really well. Just as strong as the Sun butter. But in 20 minutes instead of 2-3 days. And just like the sun-butter, if you don't mess up, NO SMELL (comparatively to your neighbors house smelling like a skunks asshole). The three most important factors in producing a strong butter are: Lecithin, Vita-Mixer, and COCOA BUTTER. It's hard, it can hold all the oil you want, it has a long shelf life. With this recipe I can make a chocolate bar with 32 knock-you-on-your-ass doses (each is 2 grams of chocolate). Made with 4 grams of fresh herb, matched with equal weight ABV (seems to add more of a nice body high-muscle relaxing). This is FUCKING EFFICIENT. So efficient that you could justify using only single source top shelf flowers and not be disappointed. But Id rather vape them first.. hahahah, or at least half. So, for every 4 grams of decent flowers, match equal weight with ABV. Before combining the ABV with the flowers, decarb em. I use a mason jar sealed in the toaster oven at 210 for 10 minutes or more. This part really varies from person to person. Some people say barely toast it, some say make it brown. Personally I think that might be batshit, someone explain to me how the THC and CBD don't get activated being blasted in a fucking pressure cooker? Once the herb is "decarbed", mix it with the ABV and dump it into your vita-mixer (or other extremely high powered blender). Take a Quart mason-jar, fill it 1/2 way up with water, dump that in the blender with your herb. Add .5 grams lecithin per 1 gram of FRESH herb. Blend that shit into green smoothie. Pour the smoothie back into the mason jar and add 4.5 Grams Cocoa Butter per 1 gram of FRESH herb (not ABV) Close the lid on the mason jar and pressure cook it in a water bath for 20 minutes. Allow it to cool naturally. Once just warm, open the jar and pour out the contents through a organic cotton bag, or very fine cheesecloth. This is actually where you can really fuck up. You have to be really patient, most of the oil is stuck in the herb. A potato ricer can be a brilliant way to really give it a proper squeeze. Sadly you wont know what you recovered until its too late, but usually I get all my cocoa butter back. Put this liquid into the fridge for a few hours, and either the cocoa butter will be rock solid (yaaaay) or sometimes it ends up a slurry (booo). Rock solid is ready to go, slurry, sieve it out and put it in glass in front of a fan. It will harden up in a day maximum. Ok, now you have some serious fucking potent cocoa butter. You can do whatever you want with it, hot chocolate, cookies, muscle rub, or ... CHOCOLATE! If you don't have tempering skills, then bite me, do your homework or make ganache. My favorite tempered chocolate bar recipe/ratio: 3 parts chocolate to 1 part cocoa butter Melt in microwave with the chocolate/cocoa butter on medium heat. For 3 - 3.5 ounce chocolate bars (12 grams of herb): Add 2 tsp fresh ground coffee (metabolize faster, less drowsy) Add 1/2 teaspoon organic turmeric powder (immune booster) Add 1/2 teaspoon organic ginger powder (stomach/anxiety ease) add 1/2 teaspoon ginseng (balances equilibrium, anti anxiety) Heat to 110, stir until smooth. Cool in icebath to 94 and add seeding (pre-tempered) chocolate and mix until it drops below 91. remove seed chocolate and quickly pour. Done. If you-all are nice enough I'll post pics. I wonder if we could send cocoa butter into a lab somewhere and see slow/vs pressure extracted actual comparison?
