Cannabis-Infused Olive Oil
Before cannabis can be used in a recipe, it must be activated or decarboxylated to maximize all of its benefits. Traditionally, decarbing meant heating the buds in a low oven for two to three hours, a process that can destroy flavor. Decarbing using sous vide, on the other hand, preserves the floral and fragrant flavors known as terpenes. After decarbing, you'll gently infuse the cannabis in olive oil, creating an aromatic ingredient you'll be able to use in both sweet and savory recipes, from aglio e olio pasta to chocolate pretzel cookies and a citrus-infused cake. You'll need an immersion stick circulator, cannabis grinder, vacuum-sealable bag, and avacuum sealer for this recipe. Note: As cannabis regulation continues to evolve across the United States and around the world, please consult your local laws.

Gochujang, the gently spiced and deeply savory Korean chile paste, is already delicious on its own, but it’s also wonderful when simmered with garlic, ginger, and sesame oil to make a saucy condiment you’ll want to drizzle over everything. Enjoy it over bibimbap, use it as a marinade for steak, or use it to top grain bowls or even congee.
