: : your recipe and methods.

Ok....CA regular powder and Jamila from CA. Added some eucyluptus
oil {maybe 1/4 c. since it was 200 g of powder}, work that in. Add
hot brew {maybe 1/2 c....4 brew tea cubes from the freezer}, mix that
in. Really tough, cuz it's chunky and crumbly and not nearly like
paste...not even cookie dough. Then I just start to thin it down w/
the lemon juice/sugar mix that I keep in the fridge for
aftercare...until it's to that cookie dough consistency. Then thin
down even more {until I reach the consisency I like} with warm tap
water {ours is good here}. Cover and I let it sit on my stove top
{warmest spot in the house} for 12 or so hours...I usually mix in the
early/mid evening and then leave it till the next day.
After that I mix it up again to work out all the lumps and get that
black layer back into the paste.
Roll a dozen cones and fill them w/ 50 oz paste. I do seem to get
600g of paste from 200g of powder...give or take. If you are rolling
10-15g cones....whoo doggies...you are gonna have a LOT of them.
After they are rolled and filled, I tape the heck out of them and put
them in a ziplock bag and put them all in the freezer.
voila...paste for the next 3 or 5 shows.
