Makes 24 at 50mg per serving.

Ingredients

1 (14-ounce) package sweetened shredded coconut
3 large egg whites, room temperature
1/2 cup Sweet Amber
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the coconut evenly on the baking sheet.  Toast coconut for 5-10 minutes, stirring every so often to ensure even color, until light golden brown. Let cool.
  2. Weigh the bowl that you will be using to hold the finished batter and write this number down. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl using an electric mixer,  beat the egg whites, Sweet Amber, and vanilla and almond extracts on high speed until the mixture becomes glossy,  thick, and holds soft peaks. Fold in the toasted coconut.
  4. Weigh the batter, subtract the weight of the bowl, and divide by 24: This is your per-cookie weight. Place a small piece of parchment paper on your scale. Weigh out batter for each cookie and place on prepared  baking sheet, spacing them 1 inch apart. Bake for 15-20 minutes, rotating the sheets halfway through,  until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Toasted Macaroons will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or you can freeze them for up to 3 months.

Recipe: Flywater

It’s easy to overlook the simplest answers. If you’re no lolly-whistle in pursuit of tummy ticklin’ yum-yums, Sweet Amber happens to blend well with water. I’ve dubbed this Flywater for reasons that aren’t particularly appetizing so instead let’s get straight to the point.

  1. Simply add Sweet Amber to water, stir until it dissolves and enjoy.

Hot water helps it dissolve, but cold water is preferable as it keeps cannabis from sticking to your cup instead of going into your body.

Flywater obviously bases well with whatever drink mix you might choose to add into your brew.

Recipe: Ambrosia

The gods of the Greek Pantheon imbibed a magical drink known as Ambrosia believed to bestow immortality. While I can’t quite promise that, try mixing Sweet Amber and green tea for a soothing mix that can help reduce sore throat, or just help you not care about it regardless.

Ingredients

  • Sweet Amber, 1-3 tsp
  • Green tea of choice
  • hot or preferably cold water with ice
  1. Prepare tea normally BEFORE adding Sweet Amber
  2. Add Sweet Amber and stir until dissolved
  3. Enjoy.
