Fall is here, and the football season is well under way with the College Football Championships tomorrow! Every sports enthusiast loves getting together with friends to cheer on their teams (or rag on others). While not everyone shares the same passion for every team, surely you can all agree on food and cannabis. It isn’t recommended to have a bad selection of snacks on game day, so here are some stony recipes to make your next football shindig even more potent.
Sweet ‘N Stony Chipotle Beer Nuts
- 2 cups nuts of your choice (the more variety, the better!)
- 2 tablespoons weed honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp oil or butter (use canna oil or canna butter for an extra bang, but be careful of potency!)
- 1/4 cup sugar (can use less)
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp chipotle seasoning (if you don’t have any, you can make your own)
- 1/4 tsp curry powder
- sauce pan
- wax or parchment paper
- baking sheet
- Add honey, vanilla, oil/butter, sugar, chipotle seasoning, and curry powder to the saucepan. Mix together and let simmer on low heat. Preheat oven to 300°.
- Add nuts to the syrupy goodness, and stir to coat them all. Continue to cook for a few minutes, occasionally stirring the nuts.
- Remove sauce pan from heat and let cool for a few minutes.
- Spoon nuts on parchment paper that is on a sheet pan.
- Sprinkle sea salt on all the nuts and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes, this will allow them to get more crispy.
- Take the nuts out of the oven, and sprinkle a little more salt or seasoning on them if you wish. Let them cool.
- Break up large chunks of nuts, and place them in a bowl or airtight container. Serve and enjoy!
Not only are these nuts great for game day, but they can be an everyday snack while on the go. This recipe is very versatile, so you can add or subtract different spices and flavors if you want to get creative. For example, add dry bacon bits for some meat, or dry fruit for more sweet.
Slow & Saucy Pork Sliders
- 1 (~5 lb) pork butt, with our without bone
- 2 onions, sliced and diced
- 4 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 1 cup broth, chicken or vegetable
- 1/4 cup cannabis oil or butter (see links in above recipe)
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp salt
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- barbecue sauce (optional)
- coleslaw, buy at store (or make it yourself with thinly chopped cabbage, onions, salt, and red wine vinegar).
- slider buns
- crock pot
- cutting board
- Slice onions and garlic, then layer them on the bottom of the crock pot.
- Mix dry ingredients and rub all over the pork. Place pork on top of onions, and pour in the cannabis oil/butter and the broth.
- Cover the crock pot with a lid and set it on low for 8-10 hours. This is a great recipe to make the night before!
- Turn off crock, and place pork on a cutting board. Strain the liquid that is left over, and set aside.
- Use two forks to pull apart the pork, being sure to remove any pesky bones.
- Return pork to the crock, and add about 1/4 cup of the liquid from before. Now is the time to add any extra barbecue or hot sauce, if you wish. Turn the crock to “stay warm” or “low” until ready to eat.
- Put a heaping portion of pork on your slider bun (toast them for an extra crunch), and then top with slaw.
- Dig in!
- 1 can chickpeas, washed
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 2 tbsp cannabis oil (see links above)
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- salt & pepper
- fresh parsley for garnish
- food processor or blender
- Add chickpeas and blend in bursts.
- After a few bursts, begin to slowly add the rest of the ingredients.
- After everything has been added, you may want to add a small amount of water in order to get a good consistency.
- Taste your hummus and add extra spices as needed.
- Place in bowl with freshly chopped parsley on top.
- Eat with your favorite veggies or chips!
As with the beer nuts above, this recipe has a lot of room for creativity. You can use spicier herbs for a bigger kick, or add other veggies to the mix for different colors. Other beans can be used in place of chickpeas to get non-traditional hummus of your choosing.
Now that you have some great recipes for the next game day get together, just add friends, smiles, and enjoy the high.
