Over the last six months or so, there's been a flurry of activity in the kitchen as I fill orders for chocolate chip cookie bars, blueberry muffins and brownies for the guys that are my husband's co-workers.
Honestly I want to stretch my baking of edibles further than these three, but these are the trio that is most requested. I mean, I have a pantry full of baking items; white chocolate baking bars, milk chocolate baking bars, coconut, a wide array of nuts (pecans, almonds, macadamia) and I'd love to experiment with some chocolate candy treats; perhaps candy bark with pretzels, my cannabis infused caramel sauce and more.
With the holidays quickly approaching, I will be doing just that. Sure I'll continue making the mainstay and favored edibles, but it's time for a change and to offer some variety.
In the attempt to provide the best possible product to those requesting or in need, I have been tweaking the way I crumble the shake and trim in my recipes.
In the past, my usual way to chop up the shake for edibles was using a knife and chopping, mincing and making the cannabis pieces as small as possible. But a month ago, I started using my coffee bean grinder. It was perfect!
The grinder chopped up the small shake buds and trim to perfection; all the while leaving a few bits of the trim larger; so you could actually see them in the batter I was preparing.
By using the grinder I was able to distribute the cannabis more; giving every bar, muffin and edible a better overall infusion of the cannabis.
And the reviews have been coming in as awesome. I've gained a few more new customers after word spread about the potency of the edibles.
So much that now my monthly side hustle income has grown from about $700 up to $850/ give or take. This little rainy day fund has been happily welcome in the household.
