Preparing To Make Botanically Infused Burritos
Start by preparing your cooking equipment and gathering your utensils. You will need a saucepan, spatula, plate, and bowls for the ingredients.
Selecting An Infused Oil Or Butter
Burritos are perfect for any time of day, but you may want to use oil infused with botanicals that give you a mental lift and even a physical energy boost. You may use a pre-made infused oil, or you can prepare your own botanically-rich oil by a traditional method explained in the next section.
Another option would be to use a home infuser. A home infusing machine increases the ease and efficiency of the infusion process. That’s why we created the LĒVO II!
How to Make Homemade Botanically Infused Oil
If you are not using pre-made infused oil, then you will have to infuse your own.
You can start this process by decarboxylating or ‘decarbing’ the flower the traditional way, or you can use a great infuser like LĒVO II. This process activates the botanicals and later, facilitates the bonding of the flower’s botanicals to the oil.
If you do not have a home infusion system, you can follow these directions for decarboxylating your raw flowers.
Break up your flower by hand, or coarsely grind it. Heat the evenly spread flower on a cookie sheet in an oven between 230-250 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Note: Make sure to agitate the tray halfway through, or every 10 minutes- and of course, be sure not to burn your flowers up! Traditional ovens are notorious for not having exact temperature settings and also, your altitude can cause varied results.
Finding the Right Flower to Oil Ratio for You
In general, many infused edible recipes call for a flower to butter ratio of one ounce of decarbed and ground flower to roughly one pound of butter or sixteen ounces of oil. You can determine the right potency for you by adjusting the flower to carrier oil portions.
Calculating Botanicals-to-Oil Ratio
You can estimate how concentrated or potent your botanicals might be by using the following sample calculation and making the necessary adjustments:
½ ounce of herb to 8 ounces of oil. This is a general rule of thumb to consider- adjust as desired.
Many consider this old-school formula reliable for estimating your botanical’s potency, but some prefer using home infusers for greater accuracy, efficiency, and control- like you can achieve using the LĒVO II.
Home oil infusers also promote consistent medicinal dosing. If you are going to regularly make your own infused edibles, this kind of equipment is an investment. Over time, the LĒVO II machine provides a cost, material, and time-effective benefit for making incredible, evenly infused culinary creations.
After you’ve chosen your desired ratio, heat your butter or oil in a saucepan. Heat on low, and melt.
Then stir in your decarbed flower and keep stirring for approximately 20 minutes. Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth and store in tinted jars, or use as needed.
Learn More About Home Infusers
Home oil infusers are a must-have for anyone who loves to cook or bake, but none compare to the LĒVO II. A home infuser makes high-quality oil, butter, dressings, and gummies with greater precision than the traditional home/oven or stove-top methods of botanical infusing.
