See our new video and recipe for Marijuana Matzo Balls!
This recipe makes approximately 14 matzo balls, and is infused with enough cannabis so that 2 matzo balls equal one 5mg dose. Adjust to your own preferences.
These matzo balls make a great addition to chicken, vegetable or any other soup you’d like. Adding cannabis to your soup course ensures that you and your guests will start feeling the effects before dinner is over!
40mg of cannabis distillate**- check your product packaging to determine how much this is, or approx. 0.04 milliliters
Cannabis flower if you are using the flower method of infusion. (see video for details)
¼ cup schmaltz or vegetable oil
4 large eggs
¼ cup plain seltzer
1 cup matzo meal
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley, dill or cilantro, or a mix
1 teaspoon salt
Prepare your schmaltz extract**
1. Place your schmaltz into a microwave safe bowl, and microwave until liquid, about 20 seconds.
2. Add your cannabis distillate into the shmaltz and stir until fully dissolved. If your distillate does not dissolve, you can place the mixture back in the microwave for an additional 20-30 seconds. Don’t overheat.
3. Once fully dissolved, let your schmaltz come down to room temperature, or place in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Prepare your Matzo balls
1. In a large bowl, combined the cannabis infused schmaltz with the remaining ingredients, and mix until well combined.
2. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, up to overnight
3. Once your mixture is ready, fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil.
4. Lightly oil your hands to prevent sticking (non-THC oil). Shape the matzo balls by taking a golf ball sized amount and molding it into a sphere. Gently drop it into the boiling water, repeating until all the mix is used.
5. Simmer the matzo balls for 25-45 minutes depending on how dense you want them. Shorter time for firm matzo balls, longer for light and fluffy.
6. Use a slotted spoon to remove the matzo balls. These are ready to go directly into soup, or can be stored refrigerated or frozen until ready to serve.
