Populated by Alice B. Toklas, also known by the movie “I love you Alice B. Toklas” from 60’s, the explorer, the author, she gave a cookbook to the world as an ultimate summary of her adventures. This one included a hashish recipes among other yummies, and this was also a biographic cookbook. O how dank it is!! whoa! XD

Moroccan Hashish Candy

However many link this Alice B’ Toklas recipe to the Moroccan traditional candy, and we know or at least we have heard how rich with hashish the Moroccan dessert is, supported by Berber culture, peeps living in desert, smoking dankest dank, riding camels, no single stranger around – so romantic!! This is what she says in her book in regard to the hashish candy:

Euphoria and brilliant storms of laughter; ecstatic reveries and extensions of one’s personality on several simultaneous planes are to be complacently expected (from Alice B. Toklas cookbook)

The candy named Majoun, some say it is in Arabic a “love potion”, I do not know Arabic, let us believe it, no problem. Yet in Sri Lanka, in their Ayurvedic, they also use cannabis as aphrodisiac. HAHAHA, many stoners know exactly why is that!!

Here’s the recipe of Majoun Hashish Candy

1) Take dry marijuana bud, or shake (stems and leaves, but you’ll need a double amount of it rather if buds) and toast them over very low heat until the aromas are released. It is a good idea to use a cooking thermometer, if you’re up to cooking and to cannabis cooking specifically, the thermometer is the tiny investment which helps you to master the THC output off your cannabis cookies. The process is called Decarb, which is the most important thing in cannabis cooking, it makes your weed POTENTIAL.

2) Mix the leaves with raisins, walnuts, nutmeg, anise, ginger, honey, and water, adding more water if the mixture is too dry and crumbly.

3) Simmer together until the mixture is soft and thick. Mash by hand. Some sources recommend a food processor to blend, using several short pulses, yet I say that cooking marijuana edibles is a mystery! D’ you prefer rolling by hands, when grinder is the only allowed machinery? Same with cooking, believe me, not to mention you lose some material in blender.

4) Stir in cannabutter, spoon into a jar, and refrigerate for storage. Spread on crackers or plain cookies, or use as a filling for stuffed cookies. Majoun will keep for about 2 to 3 months refrigerated, people say.
