MC Flow wants you to know how hard it is to be a Jew at Christmas, but she makes the best of it by adding weed to her latkes!
This hilarious rap video about “carbs that come deep-fried” reminds everyone what’s important about the holiday season—and that’s partying with your friends and family. Elevate your Hanukkah party this year with our recipe for cannabis-infused “potkes” from The Official High Times Cannabis Cookbook and get so high you feel practically biblical!
Grandma Purps’ Laid-Back Latkes
4 cups vegetable oil
5 grams cannabis buds, ground
5 lbs. Russet potatoes, unpeeled
2 eggs, beaten
3 Cipollini (or 2 regular onions)
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. freshly grated pepper
2 cups cooked rice, couscous or other grain
Begin by making the cannabis-infused vegetable oil. Use a double boiler, and heat the oil until it shimmers. Add the ground cannabis, and simmer for an hour over low heat, stirring often.
Meanwhile, begin shredding the potatoes, using a box-style grater or the grating disc on a food processor. Keep the shredded potatoes from turning grey by immersing them in water. When all the potatoes have been grated and you are ready to use them, drain them thoroughly. Grate the onions next.
Preheat your oven to 250º and place a baking sheet inside.
When the cannabis oil is ready, strain the fiber out and reserve the oil. Drain the potatoes and press them against the colander to squeeze all the water out.
Mix the grated potatoes and onions in a large bowl. Add the eggs, plus the salt and pepper. Mix well to combine. Add the flour and mix again. You may need to add a little more flour if the mixture seems too loose.
Heat 1/2 cup of the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Test the oil by dropping a teaspoon of the latke batter into the pan; if it turns brown within one minute, then the oil is ready. Make your latkes by frying one heaping tablespoon of batter, until golden brown on each side. Drain the latkes on a bed of rice or couscous to help catch the excess cannabis oil. (You can’t eat a paper towel!) Use a spatula to transfer the latkes to the oven where they’ll keep warm on the baking sheet.
Repeat this process in batches until all the latke batter is used up. Reserve any remaining oil for another purpose. Serve latkes with sour cream and applesauce. Stones 12.
