This is my method of making and cleaning CannaButter.
You can also make it the way you like then use my SuperClean method to wash it.
You can also disregard this post and do it your favorite way.
You will need:
empty jars with lids
I gather all the plant clippings I have on hand and
grind them up. I use a blender because that's all we have.
Dry or fresh clippings both work well.
Get out your crock pot. I now roughly estimate how full the
crock pot will be after adding ground plant material.
I then add enough butter to melt to that level.
For this attempt at CannaButter I used
1LB. Ground Dry Leaf Material, and 5LB. Unsalted Butter.
Melt butter in crock pot, add ground leaf material and soak.
When you see you have enough butter to wet all material add
2 cups water and stir it up real good.
Let simmer, on low, stirring occasionally. If liquid drops
below solid material, add some water.
Simmer 4 Hours. Stirring occasionally.
Turn off crock pot.
Remove plant material from crock pot using the strainer and a spoon.
Press liquids through the strainer with the spoon, back into crock pot.
Discard strained plant material.
Repeat until all material is too small for the strainer to remove.
You now have CannaButter but it will have a strong smell and taste.
Put on oven gloves if needed.
Gather the jars and pour each jar about 1/2 way full of HOT CannaButter.
Put on oven gloves if needed
Fill jar to top with HOT tap water.
Replace lid TIGHTLY and shake until all liquid in the jar is the same color.
Place on table upside down "ON LID" and allow to settle.
Repeat until all your CannaButter is in jars settling.
Allow to settle and cool 30-45 minuted.
Place in refrigerator on lid and cool until CannaButter is solid.
Remove from refrigerator and remove lid.
Pour off water from top of jar. Rinse lid then add a small amount of COLD water
into jar. Replace the lid and shake, "Cleaning off the top of CannaButter".
Pour out dirty water.
Place in Microwave for 2 minutes on High. Repeat as needed until CannaButter is liquid again.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 until settled water is clear.
Pour off clean water.
Melt Cannabutter again until liquid and pour into final storage container.
Refrigerate until you use it.
When read carefully, these statements contain subtle nuances that,
if not properly accounted for, make them seem far more significant than they really are.
