Jelly, jelly so fine

Cranberry, blueberry, ginger, walnut, sativa scones

Although I smoked my share of pot growing up and into adulthood, I hardly ever do anymore. Frankly it has been many months.  I'm not drinking either, prefer to be clear right now for some reason. Honestly haven't missed it, know where to find it if I do. It's legal, right?

Last week I made my first scones with chocolate. Tonight I made my first scones with marijuana.

You see, I have a friend who fell off a ladder and broke his leg recently. He is in terrible pain. Leslie used to make pot brownies for cancer patients and gave them away, never took a penny. It was the only relief I had when I had cancer or major surgeries and it gives a person an appetite. So we felt like we should be there for my friend.

In any case I asked my pal if he would like some scones and he said that he would. Being a true child of the North County, my friend told me that he, like I, preferred sativa strains. I just happened to know where to find some organic pure landrace Panama Red that had never been hybridized with indica. 70's Fallbrook red hair, anybody?

Just what the doctor ordered.

I decarbed the marijuana in the oven for about 40 minutes at 240 degrees. 

I then gave it a quick grind but not too fine, you don't want to turn it into powder.

I then mixed it in with a cup of water and two sticks of butter and cooked it on the stovetop on simmer for three hours. 

This is called an infusion, you give it an occasional stir.

Strained the butter through cheesecloth and a metal sieve and froze it for a day. 

Threw out the vegetable material.

Tonight I prepared my scones, after getting some advice from Howard and Ivan on proper dosages. 

I went very easy, not wanting to overdue it. 

I myself am extremely sensitive and might not even try them.

My wife has agreed to be my initial test subject. 

I whipped up a batch of blueberry, cranberry, ginger, walnut scones.  

I marked the "special" ones with a hazelnut, in addition I added cinnamon, allspice, vanilla, more ginger and brown sugar to the whole batch. 

Couldn't find the nutmeg.

I may do a lemon icing as Leslie loves it. We will see. They need to cool first.

I hope that he really likes them.

I broke down and tried one of the non marijuana ones. Yum! And added a tangelo icing, per the boss.
