Cannabis-Infused Jerk Fried Tomatoes

There’s something magical about eating food that you grow yourself. This recipe is so nostalgic to me.

As a kid, I would climb down a set of old wooden stairs into my grandma’s luscious garden. I would pick the biggest green tomatoes I could find, making sure to leave the ones that were well on their way to ripening. We would then chop them up, season, and fry them. This is hands down one of the best appetizers and summer eats of all time.

  4. In a bowl marinade each tomato slice with jamaican jerk marinade, garlic powder, smoked paprika and salt

Notes

The Jamaican jerk marinade is already well seasoned. You may not need to add any additional salt. You can always try a slice of raw seasoned tomato before you fry it up to make sure you like how it’s seasoned before frying. If there’s too much of anything, simply rinse them off in water. Also, thinly sliced tomatoes fry crispier and season better. If the tomato is juicy after you slice it, you can dab it on a paper towel to absorb some of the water. Lastly, many cannabis chefs say they do not expose their canna oil (such as avocado oil, olive oil, sesame oil, coconut oil) to high heat because it may lose potency. This is definitely true but honestly is not a concern for this recipe.
