Even the softest spoken member of the group will be reeling on the floor with laughter at the least amusing joke (the knock-knock type).
Let’s begin with the recipes.
The first thing is to have some turkey and mashed potatoes going on. If you are not much of a cook feel free to order in or have someone else handle this.
Here is where you come in.
Sativa Peanut Sauce With Sriracha
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 clove garlic, mashed
- 2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce
- 1 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 gram sativa cannabis extract. (strains such as Jack Herer, Sour diesel and Green crack are potent sativas)
- 12 tablespoons hot water (you can adjust this to suit your preferred consistency
- Optional garnish: crushed peanuts or sesame seeds
Steps 1- How To Decarboxylate Marijuana
- The first step is to decarboxylate your sativa in a bath. Take a heat resistant bowl and place it in an oil bath with a see-through lid. The level of the oil should be deep enough to ensure that the bottom of the bowl is immersed.
- Heat the oil to a temperature of 252 degrees Fahrenheit. An oil bath is used instead of a water bath because oil has a higher boiling point than water, water will not heat to this temperature. The oil will also retain the heat for a longer time.
- Place the sativa extract into the preheated bowl and allow it to boil until the bubbles stop to form. This should take about 27 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.
(Decarboxylation is the process of removing a carbon atom from the molecular structure of a compound. For THC, a carbon atom is removed from THCA to convert it into THC, which is the active form of tetrahydrocannabinol)
Step 2: Preparing the Sativa Peanut Sauce
- Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk until the mixture is even.
- Add the mixed sauce ingredients to the decarboxylated sativa extract, minus the hot water. Whisk again until even.
- Slowly add the water as you stir, ensure it mixes well and form a thick sauce.
- Garnish with crushed peanuts or sesame seeds.
The sriracha sauce will not only add to the “heat” of the sativa but it will also set off your body on a steam releasing spree.

What are giblets?
These are the extra turkey parts such as the neck, heart, liver, and gizzards that you find stuffed in the cavity of the turkey.
What are drippings?
What remains in the roasting pan after the turkey is cooked is referred to as drippings. This will be fat that has melted from the turkey and tiny bits of the turkey that have fallen off.
