Recipes with Hemp food products December 03, 2004 7:30 AM

I thought it would be nice to post some hemp food recipes to go along with my last posting. I will use this thread to give you guys new ones every so often. I know that I am a bit late for Thanksgiving dinner but the rest of the holiday season is still among us Also, if anyone else knows any good recipes, please feel free to share them here How about we start out with something nice and simple..... ~ROASTED HEMPSEED~ Buy and clean some fresh hemp seeds (dry or wet, but wet will need to be cooked for a longer amount of time). *For oven roasting.... Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Spread the seeds out evenly over a shallow cookie sheet (the recipe says that it should be no deeper than an inch) You could season and/or butter them if you want but they are flavorful on their own. Also, if you use butter, use very little because the seeds are filled with plenty of their own natural oils that will come out in roasting. Bake them for 30 minutes or until the popping sound that you will here slows down. *For wok or skillet-roasting....... Heat up a steel hammered wok or large iron skillet that is not oiled over a high flame. When the pan is completly heated, reduce the heat to the medium setting. Toss in your hempseeds (seasoned or not) and stirr them constantly for about 20 minutes. >You will know that the seeds are ready, in either method, simply by smelling the "nutty aroma" and seeing the slightly browned color that the seeds will have. Hope you guys like this recipe, I will post more later. Enjoy  [ send green star]

Well, like I had said before (in the other thread). You can make almost any recipe into a hemp food recipe by using hemp flour or hemp cooking oil instead of the usual stuff. But there are also some other yummy treats that can be made with the seeds. Right now I do not have time to type them out (i'm sorry)but I will as soon as possible Oh, I almost forgot to mention hempseed butter in replacement of the usual! ~natalie~  [ send green star]

"POTCORN!" This is the fun little name given in my hemp cookbook for this food. ~Basically this is just another way to roast your hemp seeds so again you will need some fresh bare hempseed. But you CANNOT use wet! There is an electrical hazard. Also, not all poppers will work ~Use an ordinary hot-air popper and cook 1/4-1/2 cup batches at a time. Depending on your popper it could take between 30 seconds and 3 minutes. ~ You will have to be ready to VERY QUICKLY turn off the machine because the time between it being done and getting burned is VERY close together. So don't take your hand off the switch. ~Not all of the seed will puff but most will. Unlike popcorn the ones that don't pop can still be eaten though. ~Season the seeds AFTER you pop them, not before. Hope you like it ~natalie~ P.S. It is also suggested that you have a seperate popper for corn and hemp. Also, not all poppers will work for hemp seed. They tell you to use a simply designed one with a wide cylinder where the hot-air will evenly circulate.  [ send green star]
Hemp Flour January 05, 2005 5:19 AM

If you have an at home grinder or mill you can make your own hempseed flour (if you don't you can still buy it from the store or internet. ~Use hulled hempseed along with your choice of other grains. Hempseed is too oily to be ground by itself so you will have to make multigrain flour. ~Grind it all into a nice flour consistency and use it! Thatís easy enough right?! ~Whatever you don't use should be refrigerated. ~Use this flour for any recipe that calls for flour. ~natalie~  [ send green star]
