*This recipe is designed for high tolerance users. Lower tolerance users who make this recipe should substitute regular butter for cannabis-butter in the biscuits recipe.
Strains suggested for use in cannabis-butter & marijuana milk recipes:
- 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour (OR 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 3 1/4 teaspoons baking powder, and 3/8 teaspoon salt if you do not have self-rising flour)
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons vegetable shortening
- 4 tablespoons cannabis-butter (chilled)
- 1 cup chilled buttermilk
- 1lb sage pork sausage
- 1/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
- 1/3 cup flour
- 2 cups whole milk
- 2 cups whole-marijuana-milk
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons black pepper plus more to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
- a pinch of cayenne pepper
- Preheat the oven to 450°F.
- Prepare a floured work surface for shaping the dough and an ungreased baking sheet.
- Whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Use a fork or pastry blender to cut in the shortening and cannabis-butter. Work quickly to turn the mixture into a coarse, crumbly meal. Don’t handle directly with your hands to avoid warming the butter and shortening.
- Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the buttermilk. Stir with a spoon until the liquid is absorbed and the dough starts to pull away from the sides, adding an additional tablespoon or two of buttermilk if the dough is too dry. You want the dough to be nice an tacky.
- Use floured hands to turn the dough onto the floured work surface and fold it over on itself 2 or 3 times. Shape into a 3/4″ round. Use a 2″ biscuit butter and cut out the biscuits, pressing straight down (not twisting).
- Place the biscuits on the baking sheet so they just barely touch. Reshape the dough scraps and continue cutting until there is no more dough left. Set aside.
- Place a saucepan on the stove over medium-high heat.
- Once the pan is hot, crumble the sausage unto the pan and let it brown for a minute or two then turn down the heat to medium. Break the sausage into smaller pieces while it cooks until there is no more pink. Stir in the onions and cook until they are transparent.
- Add the biscuits to the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes. They are done when edges are golden brown.
- Sprinkle half the flour over the sausage, and stir until it is all soaked up. Add a little more just before the sausage starts to look too dry.
- Stir it around and cook for another minute or so, then pour all 4 cups of milk (2 cups whole milk & 2 cups whole-marijuana-milk), stirring constantly.
- Cook the gravy, stirring constantly until the gravy thickens. Sprinkle in the spices (salt, pepper, nutmeg, poultry seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper) and continue cooking until the gravy is thick and velvetty. If it gets too thick, splash in 1/2 cup of milk. Taste and adjust the seasonings.
Once the gravy is finished and the biscuits are cooked, top the biscuits with the gravy. Serve immediately.
Leftover biscuits can be stored in an airtight container for 4 to 7 days. Leftover gravy can be stored refrigerated in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 4 weeks.
