If you’ve ever craved a warm apple crisp that tastes so cozy it feels like a hug, this is the recipe for you. In under an hour, you’ll get a deliciously crumbly and sweet apple crisp, made in a skillet and infused with cannabis for a little extra oomph.
When it’s cold and wet in New England, all you want to do is reach for comfort food that warms you from the inside out. For some people it’s soup, for others, it’s a steaming cup of tea – here at Hennep in Provincetown, it’s a warm apple crisp.
Whether you have it hot, cold, fresh, or leftover, apple crisp is arguably one of the best desserts for the fall and winter months. (But, if you have it with some ice cream in the summer months, we wouldn’t blame you…)
There’s never a bad time of year for apple crisp, but it gets a chance to shine during the holiday season. The best part about our THC-Infused Skillet Apple Crisp is that you get a beautiful mix of textures: the crunch of the crust – thanks to the skillet – the gooey apple cinnamon center, and the creamy goodness of the ice cream and caramel or chocolate sauce topping.
There are so many ways to infuse this dish with your favorite cannabis products, so buckle in as we take you through all the possibilities.
How to Infuse Your Desserts with Cannabis
When it comes to baking, there are so many ways to infuse your desserts. The most popular method is to use cannabis-infused butter or chocolate.
Chocolate edibles are the go-to choice to use when baking with cannabis because they are readily available at local dispensaries. For instance, at Hennep in Cape Cod, we have 20+ cannabis-infused chocolate products that you could use to melt down and bake your own desserts – like a Chocolate Lava Cake or Infused Chocolate Cereal Bark.
However, another common option is to use infused butter. Although Hennep does not carry pre-infused butter products, we do have everything you need to infuse store-bought butter easily.
The most common way people make their own infused butter is by adding decarboxylated cannabis flower to melted butter, then straining the flower out of the butter and letting it solidify for use again.
This, however, can be a long process – and when you’re craving that Infused Skillet Apple Crisp at midnight, there’s no time to waste. So, we’re going to give you the next best method: using a tincture.
By using a THC tincture, you can simplify the infusion process compared to traditional methods. You can either use one of our Hennep tinctures to create your own cannabutter or simply add the tincture to your apple mixture in the recipe below.
Step-by-Step Tutorial to Make THC-Infused Butter
*It’s essential to check the THC concentration of the tincture you use during this process and calculate the dosage accordingly. Start with a small amount of the infused butter and wait for the effects before consuming more, as the onset of edibles can take some time.
- Melt the butter. In a cooking pot, melt the butter over low heat.
- Add the tincture. Once the butter is melted, add the desired amount of cannabis tincture. The potency will depend on the concentration of THC in the tincture and your personal preference for dosage.
- Mix and Simmer. Stir the mixture thoroughly to ensure even distribution of the tincture in the butter. Simmer the mixture on low heat for about 20-30 minutes. This helps the tincture integrate with the butter.
- Cool and Store. Allow the infused butter to cool to room temperature. Transfer the cooled butter to an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator until it solidifies.
For this Infused Skillet Apple Crisp recipe, keep your butter cold in the fridge until it’s ready to use.
