When fall is in the air, many of us flock to our local apple orchards to enjoy the crisp weather and pick our favorite fall fruit right from the tree.
It’s easy to go a little overboard on your apple harvest when you’re caught up in that fall feeling.
Try cooking up a few batches of these yummy treats and skip the part where you rack your brain trying to come up with ways to use all of your apples.
Apple Cinnamon Medicated Muffins
Nothing beats greeting the day with a freshly baked muffin—especially when that muffin packs a powerful dose of cannabis. Start your morning off right by nibbling on one of these medicated apple cinnamon muffins with your coffee.
- 3 cups of flour
- ¾ cup of sugar
- ¾ cup of brown sugar (packed)
- 3 teaspoons of baking powder
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 1 cup of milk
- cup of cannabutter (melted)
- 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
- 2 cups of finely chopped apples (a tart variety tastes best here)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin, or insert a paper liner into each cup.
- In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon.
- Add remaining ingredients and stir until fully mixed.
- Spoon batter into muffin tin. Bake for 19-23 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool for about five minutes before removing from pan.
Honey Apple Ganja Butter
More of a jam than a butter, this honey apple spread will kick your morning toast game up a notch. The best part: the fall-infused smell that takes over your kitchen while the flavors in this concoction get to know each other in your slow cooker.
- 5 lbs of apples
- 1/3 cup of cannabis infused honey (High Times has a great recipe for this)
- 1/3 cup of brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
- First, wash and prep the apples. Peel, core, and cut into large chunks.
- Put apples, infused honey, brown sugar, and spices in a large slow cooker. Stir until combined.
- Cover, and cook on low heat for 7-8 hours. Remove the lid and stir. The apples should be very soft, and should mostly dissolve into the honey mixture when stirred.
- For a smoother texture, use a blender (preferably an immersion blender) to puree the apple butter at this stage. Return to the slow cooker if removed for blending.
- Cover and cook on high for 45-60 minutes, until it thickens and reaches your preferred consistency.
Old Fashioned Canna-Apple Dumplings
These dumplings dish out a whole lot of flavor and will evoke memories of Grandma’s old timey cooking. It’s not just the apple cinnamon pastry goodness that will knock your socks off–these dumplings are made by using cannabutter in two different parts of the recipe.
- 1 package of pie crust
- 6 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored
- 1/2 cup of cannabutter (chilled)
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
- 3 cups of water
- 2 cups of white sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 13×9 inch baking pan, and set aside.
- Roll out pie dough onto a lightly floured surface, and divide into six even sections (large enough to hold one apple). Divide cannabutter into eight equal amounts.
- Place an apple in the center of each section of pie crust. Place one piece of cannabutter into the center of each apple (set aside the remaining butter). Sprinkle brown sugar on both the outside and inside of each apple. Sprinkle nutmeg and cinnamon over the tops of the apples.
- Keeping fingertips slightly moist to prevent sticking, bring the edges of each pie crust section up to meet in the center and press together to seal the dough. Place each apple in the prepared baking dish.
- Mix water, sugar, vanilla, and the remaining cannabutter in a saucepan. Over medium heat, bring mixture to a boil, and allow to cook for five minutes or until the sugar is entirely dissolved. Pour over the dumplings.
- Bake for 55-60 minutes. Spoon sauce over the top of dumplings, and serve warm.
