5 Amazing Baking Recipes You Can Try Using Wild Orchard Co. THCa Flower Core-Infused Diamonds “Do Si Do”

The THCa flower available at Wild Orchard Co. allows you to experience a product that’s almost chemically identical to marijuana, while being totally legal under federal law.  Our THCa flower comes from organic hemp farmers in Oregon, where it’s cultivated to yield high levels of THCa, resulting in a natural product that can give you all of the sought-after effects of delta 9 THC once it’s decarboxylated through smoking, vaping, or baking.

While vaping and smoking are great ways to experience the effects of THCa flower, we’re going to focus on baking with it today, with 5 fantastic recipes that are easy, delicious, and certain to give you the delta 9 edibles experience you’ve been looking for.  We’re also going to be focusing on a strain that happens to be one of the most in-demand of all time – Do Si Do.

First Step: Making CannaButter

Before we dive into recipes, we need to make some cannabutter.  This is just butter infused with cannabis flower – in this case, our THCa flower in Do Si Do.  The process is simple, thankfully.

First, measure 2 cups of flower and sprinkle them onto a baking sheet in an even layer, on top of parchment paper.  Bake them for 25 minutes at 250 degrees, which will decarboxylate the flower, turning the THCa into delta 9 THC.

Now, grind the buds coarsely and put them into a saucepan, along with 2 sticks of unsalted butter and a cup of water.  Simmer this on low for about 2 and a half hours, never letting it come to a boil.  Strain it into a jar, and refrigerate for up to 6 months.

5 Recipes to Try

Now, let’s get to the fun part.  After you make your cannabutter, you can simply use that in place of regular butter in all kinds of delicious baked recipes.  If you need a little help finding inspiration, here are 5 mouthwatering recipes that we’ve tested ourselves.

Garlic Knots

Now, let’s get into some savory recipes, starting with these garlic knots.  These are easy to make if you have some pre-made pizza dough on hand.

  • 6 tbsp cannabutter

  9. Bake the garlic knots in the oven until they turn golden-brown – about 15 minutes.

Baked Mac n’ Cheese

If you’re looking to make an entire meal around your THCa flower, look no further than this baked mac and cheese.  It can be the main course or a side dish, depending on your definition of “dinner”.

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup + 2tbsp canna utter
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ cups milk
  • 1 tsp dried mustard powder
  • About 4 cups of cheese, shredded (you can use whatever cheeses you like, but some cheddar is practically essential!)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1lb cooked elbow macaroni (or another type of pasta that you prefer for your mac and cheese)
  • ¾ cup panko breadcrumbs

Preparation:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter a large baking tray.
  3. Combine the ¼ cup butter and the flour in a saucepan on medium heat, whisking the entire time as the butter melts – this will eventually become a roux, which is a golden-brown, thick sauce.
  4. Once that develops, add the milk and whisk continuously on medium-low heat until the sauce thickens to the consistency of melted chocolate.
  5. Stir in your mustard powder, 3 of the 4 cups of cheese, and salt.
  6. Stir the sauce into your cooked pasta and stir well.
  7. Turn this mixture out into a baking tray.
  8. Top with the remaining cheese, the panko, and the remaining butter, chopped into small pieces and dropped sparsely on top.
  9. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden-brown.
