While the garlic powder may not be traditional, it does enhance the flavor and hide some of the “green” taste but feel free to leave it out. A Jewish Bubby (who happened to be a fabulous cook) once told me the secret to fluffy matzo balls is to NEVER open the lid during the cooking process. It’s always worked for me!
A note about the Dosing on this recipe!
This recipe will have about 40 mg THC per serving IF you made your marijuana oil from average cannabis (10% THC) and used 1/2 ounce of marijuana to make 1 cup oil. To adjust the dosage up or down to meet your personal needs and to reflect the strength of the marijuana you are cooking with and the amounts you used to make your oil, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Class that will teach you how to do it, or use my handy dosage calculator tools that do all the math for you (see below).
