Recipe: Cannabis-Infused Potato Latkes
Start to finish: 20 minutes
Yield: 6 latkes
Approximate dosage: 5mg THC per latke*
- 4 medium-sized russet potatoes
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 2 tablespoons matzo meal
- 6 tablespoons of cannabis-infused cooking oil
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon coarse black pepper
- Applesauce and sour cream to garnish
- Peel the potatoes and cut into equal quarters. Add potatoes to a food processor and process using a blade that will create long, thin strips.
- In a large bowl, combine processed potatoes with the beaten eggs, matzo meal, salt, and pepper.
- Over medium heat, add the infused olive oil to a large skillet. Leaving a little space in the pan between each latke, drop six large spoonfuls of the potato mixture into the skillet and press down to create a flat circular or oval shape.
- Fry each side of the latkes for four minutes or until crisp and golden. Repeat until all the latke mixture has been fried.
- Transfer the latkes to a paper towel on a large plate and let cool.
- Enjoy with applesauce, sour cream, or a dollop of both.
*Note: The amount of cannabis product specified in this recipe is a very loose suggestion; the actual amount you use should be modified based on the strength of your product and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky (click here to learn why), so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
