Craving some southern comfort food? There's nothing better than home cooked jalapeno corn bread topped with cannabis honey butter. This incredible combination of sweet and spicy flavors will enliven your palate and make the perfect side dish to a wide array of entrees. You can even enjoy just as a snack.
To ensure you are making the best corn bread batter, we've provided a quick checklist to review before getting started:
1. Be sure to check the date on your cornmeal before baking. Rancid corneal will smell stale and musty.
2. When mixing batter, don't use an electric mixer. Mixing by hand is best and be sure to leave some lumps.
3. When making muffins, partially fill any empty tins with water. The moisture will improve the muffins, the tins will heat more evenly and clean up is a breeze.
4. For crusty cornbread, use a dark pan over a light pan. You can even cook the batter in a skillet if you like it extra crispy.
5. Honey CannaButter is our favorite part of this recipe. To ensure best results, use a strain containing the desired Linalool terpene profile. Please see our at home recipe here.
As we love supporting local vendors, we recommend sourcing ingredients from your local dispensary and market. This recipe makes 12 muffins (adults only!). Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
