Booze & Drugs
Last week I celebrated my promotion (getting tenure at U of
Chicago). After giving everyone a "Hemp Safety Course," including the video of
"Hemp for Victory" I brought out a batch of brownies. The "pros" in the group
said they tasted like "liquid hash." Most people said they felt good till 4 pm
the next day. So I thought I'd share the recipe with the net.
Start with Hershey's Premium Baking Bar Unsweetened
Chocolate. On the back is a recipe for brownies which includes 1 cup butter, 4
squares of chocolate, 2 cups sugar, 4 eggs, 1 cup of flour and vanilla extract.
Start with dry hemp leaves and grind them in a coffee grinder to a fine powder.
Put in a measuring cup until 75 ml of "green flour" is made. Fill to the 1 cup
mark (250 ml) with regular flour. Proceed with recipe on box: Heat oven to 350
F, grease 13 x 9 x 2 (inch) pan. Heat butter and chocolate and stir with wooden
spoon until smooth. Stir in sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla extract
and stir in flour mixture. Add nuts if desired (a very nice touch I think) and
bake for 40 minutes. It seemed to take 10 minutes longer than the box suggested
(30 minutes) to be completely baked through. Makes 3 dozen brownies. Take 2 and
wait an hour. Take 4 and cruise for 12 hours. Enjoy!
