Ric Orlando's 420 Recipes Green Dragon and Green-tini

-->
The Green Dragon,
or how you can convert your weed into an innocuous looking powerhouse.

The Green Dragon is a simple Cannabis tincture. It is the easier and best way to get a long, happy buzz on without the hassle of mixing, baking and stewing, It low calorie, easy on the lungs and packs a wallop…and best of all, it doesn’t require using up your finest fuzzy premium bud. So why not try?
SO here is my easy recipe I have “heard of” from others.

Makes 12 oz. Takes a month to make.
½ cup of  bud trimmings, twigs, leaves, stems and shake, broken up in a grinder or blender
12 oz good quality vodka or  8 fl oz Everclear
Put the weed and the alcohol in a mason jar. Seal the lid tight.
Shake it real good.
Store in a cool dark place that is not hard to access.
Every morning, give it a shake.
You will begin to notice that the week is losing its color and the alcohol is taking on color, greenish, or browning or even purplish depending upon the strain you are using.
Keep doing your daily shake for about 4 weeks, or until the weed has lost most of its color.
Strain it out through a cheese cloth or coffee filter. You can store in a tincture bottle with an eyedropper, or any other glass or plastic bottle. If you used everclear you can add 3 oz of water now to extend it.
Start out by doing 3 DROPS under your tongue. I said drops. Test its potency that way.
This shit is powerful.

The GreenTini
This is fun and easy and works wonders when the world is just a little too much.
2 oz Good quality Vodka
1 teaspoon green dragon
and depending upon your palate…
½ oz green chartreuse
-       OR
½ oz sweetened green tea

Shake well on ice, Strain into martini glass.
Garnish with whatever edible green herb suits your fancy. I like Purslane when its available








The Trip-Ster
So you have the perfectly focused friend. She does everything right. She’s beginning to wear you out.
Convince her to add six little drops of Green Dragon into her morning Green Smoothie…
and Join her with your own. Then break out the art supplies and the vinyl.
Your friendship has been saved. You are about to have a much needed refocusing.

Ric Orlando's Vegetarian Eggplant Balls (Standard and Gluten Free Versions)

Ric Orlando's Vegetarian Eggplant Balls (Standard and Gluten Free Versions)
Wow. These eggplant balls were chosen to represent the Berkshire/Hudson/Capital/Central NY area in the US Foods Next Top Product contest!

They are very old school, much the same as my mother's–and her mother's–bready Neapolitan meatballs. Braise them in simple red sauce with pasta, make a sub with lots of mozz, slice them onto pizza or salad, served with tzatziki...the possibilities are endless!

(Oh yes, and want them gluten free? We got you! Just use Gluten Free Crumbs)

Makes about 24 delectable eggplant balls

2 tablespoons salt
4 large eggplants , peeled, stem removed,  and cut into quarters lengthwise
2 cups panko bread crumbs or more if needed
2 eggs
1/2 cup  grated Pecorino romano cheese
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 bunch Italian parsley, chopped to yield 1/4 cup
2 tsp dry oregano
pinch crushed red pepper to taste
1/2 cup sunflower or other neutral flavoredvegetable oil.

A Fine Corned Beef done correctly...in a bit of a brogue

Here is MY fine recipe in detail for cooking corned beef and cabbage---

Aye, As told by me to you, with hopes that you will tell your best version of this tale again to be carried on for as long as it can travel---

I. SELECTING THE MEAT
Buy a nice slab o' brisket or ready corned beef brisket form a butcher of fine repute and deriving from a cow also of fine repute.
And mark my words, Brisket means brisket here--the bottom round and other "corned beef cuts" are as counterfeit as the Queen's crown---
and nice meaning not too trimmed, retaining both the "flat" and the “nose". Make sure it has enough fat between the layers. A finger’s worth is right. Less and you will have a dry brisket. The fat is as important here as it is to a young lass seeking her prince. A little bit o’ fat will maintain the experience tender, and as she grows older, she will still be something to be desired. I am referring to that fine brisket here, now keep your devilish…

Ric Orlando's Latkes that Beat Bobby Flay!!!!!

Here they are! Ric Orlando's Luscious Latkes featured on BEAT BOBBY FLAY!!! And they WON!!

Potato Latkes, or Ashkenazi style potato pancakes, are a staple in most Jewish American households. So, this Italian chef is going to teach you how to make these amazing latkes! Got a problem with dat?I have had many a latke that has all of the traditional flavors of the classic, but were either too greasy, too rubbery or just flat. Tradition can use some technical assistance sometimes and here is my shot at it.

One of my secrets in grating the potatoes two ways.The classic regular box-grated potatoes give you the creaminess and the French style “mandolined” potatoes add a lacy, crisp componentthat makes them addictive. Also, check out the tossing technique and the incorporation of the potato liquid…read on cynics…!
