    Ingredients
    • 1/4 ounce of cannabis tops
    • 1/2 cup raisins
    • 1/2 cup walnuts
    • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1 teaspoon ground anise (not star anise)
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/2 cup honey
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 2 tablespoons butter (or cannabutter)
    Instrutions:

    1. Remove stems and seeds from 1/4 ounce of marijuana tops, then dry and crumble the leaves. In a dry skillet, toast the leaves over very low heat until the aromas are released.
    2. Mix the leaves with 1/2 cup raisins, 1/2 cup walnuts, 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1 teaspoon ground anise, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/2 cup honey, and 1/2 cup water, adding more water if the mixture is too dry and crumbly.
    3. Simmer together until the mixture is soft and thick. Mash by hand or transfer to a food processor and blend, using several short pulses.
    4. Stir in 2 tablespoons butter, spoon into a jar, and refrigerate for storage. Spread on crackers or plain cookies, or use as a filling for stuffed cookies. Majoun will keep for 2 to 3 months refrigerated.
    I have not tried this recipe, but I have read about it in a few books and haven't found it on this forum so I thought I should share.

    if stoners have managed to remember anything for more than 2 days it must be good
    so a 1000 year old weed recipe must be pretty good lol

    I made it a few days ago.

    Total duration in my case was 2 hours.
    I had put around 8 grams of thc instead (last of a huge bag ;) ) of the tops and 2 grams of tops that were crushed. I used a ?sieve? to filter large pieces.

    My opinion:

    Its very good, it tastes like an marrocan spice shop smells.
    But its exagerated that you begin to trip after a spoonfull. I put 2 crackers on top of each other with the majoun in the middle. I need about 4 to feel as stoned as i would be if i smoke 0.3grams of cannabis on my own. Maybe i just smoke to much i don't know.
    I know my cannabis is potent so it's not crap weed.

    Conclusion:

    Just make it, its well worth your time and weed. And ok its not so potent as many say on the internet but you have ALOT of majoun so i can eat like a 100 crackers if i want too, so theres plenty.



    Sorry for improper english, has been a while i talked english on forums

    what the HECK??? they had food processors 1k years ago?
    seriosuly anything with anise in it will kill the pot flavor (could be a good thing? some hate it)
