Magical Butter Recipe: The Best Infused Butter for Cooking

As more than half the population of the United States live in states that have legalized recreational herb, many people have discovered edibles. However, many people who want to make their own edibles may not know they have to prepare the herb before putting it in the recipe, or else it will not unlock the full potential of the flower. Essentially, preparing the hemp is a process of gently heating it up and then infusing it into oil or butter – we call it magical butter because of the elevated feeling it can give to those who consume the magical butter in cookies, gummies, or other edibles. 


Key Takeaways

  1. Decarboxylation is Essential: Before you can make magical butter, the herb must undergo decarboxylation (decarbing) to activate its psychoactive potential. This process can be manually done in the kitchen or with a specialized machine like LĒVO, which ensures precision and convenience.

  2. Versatility in Ingredients: You can create magical butter using various types of fats, not just butter. For different recipes, such as gummies or savory dishes, using oils like coconut or olive oil might be more suitable due to their neutral flavors or specific fat profiles.

  3. Lecithin Is Optional but Beneficial: Adding lecithin to your magical butter is not required, but it can enhance the emulsification process, which is particularly useful in recipes requiring a mix of oil and water-based ingredients. It helps improve the texture and potentially aids in the digestive absorption of cannabinoids.

  4. Easy and Efficient with LĒVO: The LĒVO machine automates the entire process of decarbing and infusing, making it as easy as brewing coffee. It's designed for clean, effortless setup and cleanup, with dishwasher-safe components, ensuring a seamless experience from start to finish.

The process of heating the herb is called decarboxylation, or decarbing. It can be done in a kitchen, or you can invest in a decarboxylation machine that also infuses for you precisely.

Do I need to decarb my flower before making magical butter?

Decarbing is required to get any intoxicating effect from the flower. If you simply put flower that has not been activated into your edible, you will probably not feel any effect from it, but decarbing will optimize the active ingredient that you add to the edibles you make.

LĒVO: A Machine that Decarbs and Infuses Your Magical Butter Automatically

One surefire way to avoid ruining your herb is to use LĒVO, a magic butter machine that automates the process. The inventors of LĒVO wanted to make the process of creating magical butter as easy as making coffee in a coffee pot. All you have to do is pack the herb into a metal pod and set LĒVO to activate (decarb). When the decarboxylation is complete, put oil or butter in the machine until it covers the herb and set it on infusion. When it is done, you can press the dispense button. LĒVO is easy to clean because all the parts can go into the dishwasher.

Can I make magical butter but use oil instead?

You can use oil to make your magical butter. For some recipes, for example, savory edibles like this Infused Homemade Latke Recipe may taste better with infused oil. Oil is probably better for making your own gummies, too, because it has a neutral taste.

Does this magical butter recipe require lecithin?

Lecithin is an emulsifier that helps oil-based ingredients bind to water-based ingredients. The benefit of using lecithin in your edibles is that the structural integrity of baked goods is preserved and strengthened, and all the ingredients stick together. Some people believe that adding lecithin to baked goods also makes them more digestible and easier for your body to absorb the infused hemp (we don't think this has never been proven, but lecithin is sold in the supplement aisle to aid in digestion). The answer to the question is that lecithin is not necessary for magical butter, but it could help make great infused gummies, or anything else that requires water and oil to bind.

How much butter does this magical butter recipe make?

This recipe will make one pound (16 oz) of magical butter. Depending upon how much herb you put into that pound, you can bake several potent recipes of edibles.

What recipes can I make with my magical butter?

You are only limited by your imagination! Virtually all baked goods recipes call for butter or oil. You can even infuse olive oil and make salad dressings. Infuse magic butter or ghee to make Filipino Chicken Adobo. There are hundreds of edible recipes on the Internet, so start looking for something that will fill you up and make you smile.

Can I make gummies with this magical butter recipe?

Making gummies is a different process than making edible baked goods. Gummies require purchasing LĒVO gummy mix, which will allow you to make candies with infused oil in them. Oil is a preferred ingredient when making gummies, so if you want to make gummies, check out our Coconut Oil Infusion recipe, and then move on to the recipe for infused gummies.
