How to add cannabutter to this recipe and make it an edible:

To make this recipe into an edible, we've added cannabutter to it and this is how you determine the right amount of cannabutter to use.

As part of a cannabis-infused meal

If this dish is part of a three-course edibles meal - as in appetizer, entree, and dessert, then each of those 3 courses should have 1/3 of a per-person quantity of cannabutter - per serving. So each of your guests would have received a full dose of cannabutter by the end of the meal.

Add a 1/3 of a per-person quantity of cannabutter to the recipe for every serving the recipe yields.

As a single serving edible

If this will be the only offering of the day infused with cannabis, then add one full per-person quantity of cannabutter to the recipe for every serving the recipe yields.

If the cannabutter you added was less than what the recipe called for, then add the remaining butter you need using regular butter.

Salted or unsalted cannabutter

Something to always pay attention to in a recipe is if it calls for regular or unsalted butter. It will make a big difference if a recipe calls for unsalted butter plus salt - and instead you use regular salted butter and and add salt. You may have just doubled the salt the recipe calls for and the amazing taste from your results is gone. Salt, like all the other ingredients in your recipe, is a very careful blend of flavors and notes.

Unless you're eating a potato chip, salt plays a supporting role in a recipe. If all you have is salted butter, then you should be able to eliminate the salt that recipe calls for - sample your work as you cook to decide.

How to determine a per-person dose of cannabutter

Arriving at what makes for a good per-person amount of cannabutter is a bit of a process, so don't wait until the last minute to work through this step.
