    Here's something new. We had several mint plants growing in the yard last year. I saved a bunch of leaves from the mint plant and cooked them up with some butter. Now I have mint flavored butter which goes GREAT in cookie and brownie recipes!

    Thanks for this thread bro! My first attempt was not succesful, but I followed this one except for I only cooked it for 12 hrs and I put 98 grams of sugar leaves in there to 1lb of butter! LOL Yeah my cookies were space cakes!

    And the mint idea is awesome! I will try that next time.

    Seriously, 4.5ounces of sugar trim per pound of butter will rock your world, hahaha!

    Word of advice: Mint cannabutter + fried eggs = not so much

    Try warming a cup of milk add some hot chocolate mix, 1/2 tsp sugar, stir in a tsp of your butter with mint, stir and drink while it's still hot.

    Just plugged in my Crockpot. I am using 21.5 grams of trim and popcorn buds and 1/2 lb of butter. I ground the trim up really fine in a coffe grinder I bought just for that. Great post, +rep. Can't wait to bake with my butter! Thanks for the recipe!

    I bought some cookie mix at our ghetto mart! LOL But I want to make some brownies next time. I have my left over butter in the freezer so when my cookies are done I am thinking about some brownies.

    When substituting butter for oil in a mix (like brownies), I usually add a little more than the recipe calls for. No particular reason, it just seems to work well.

    Just started using this method about an hour and a half ago. I have 2 crock pots going, one tiny one using very small amounts as a tester. The other one was done with 2oz of trimmings and 1lb of butter :weed:

    Planning to leave the small one in there until tonight before separating the butter and trimmings and will probably leave the other one over night before separating that batch

    Hello Doctor. First of, thank you for posting this recipe. I used the crock pot overnight (about an oz. of trimmings and 3/4 lb. butter) and then about 14 hours later strained and put the concoction in the fridge. The butter has separated and has been in the fridge for about 8 hours. My question is, how long before I cut the butter out and remove it from the water? I would hate to waste anything. Thanks again.

    If it has seperated and the butter is hard you are fine to get the butter out. How long has it been in the fridge? You will be able to tell when it is ready bro as long as it is as cold as it normaly would be in the fridge you should be fine.

    Some folks, myself included like to do a second separation to further clarify.
    Once the butter is good and hard I remove it in pieces, rinse the bottom off & its ready to cook with.
    Buckle your seatbelt, its a fun (and long) ride.
