If you are a home cook looking to make something extraordinary for the ‘holidaze’, then you need to check out Jeff the 420 Chef.

Known for micro-dosing his meals, the 420-friendly chef’s cooking technique uses infused oils – not just butter  – with a ‘light’ cannabis taste, no odor. It allows the other ingredients to shine, and makes for infused food which taste more like the homemade, delicious comfort food you grew up eating.

The chef has a cookbook out, The 420 Gourmet, and now the cannabis chef is expanding his cooking empire with a new podcast.

The Wake and Bake podcast is a series focusing on information, tips, news, reviews and interviews with the most influential cannabis industry leaders, discussing key points of interest in the edibles segment of the industry.

“The entire podcast is designed to help you better understand the world of cannabis infused edibles, or what some of us like to call “medibles”, to help you make the most of your edible experience” says Jeff the 420 Chef.

Canna-Cherry Glazed Ham


1 (10 pound) fully-cooked ham (bone in)
¾ stick Canna-butter (melted carefully on a VERY low heat-make sure it doesn’t boil!)
¾ cups packed dark brown sugar
¾ cups cane sugar
½ cup pineapple juice
½ cup Amaretto
½ Cup Cherry preserves (with whole cherries)
½ medium orange, juiced and zested
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon WHOLE cloves

 How to Make It:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. 
  2. Place ham in a roasting pan and bake for 2 hours.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine sugars, pineapple juice, cherry preserves, orange juice, orange zest, cinnamon and a few cloves (save the rest of the cloves to pierce the ham). Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add in Amaretto. Set aside.
  4. Remove ham from oven (after 2 hours)
  5. Score ham and pierce sections with cloves – but don’t leave them in (we’ll put them back in later)
  6. Slowly Pour melted Cannabutter over ham, making sure that it seeps into all the nooks and crannies. 
  7. Place cloves back in holes 
  8. Brush with glaze. Bake for an additional 30 to 45 minutes, brushing ham with glaze every 10 minutes until golden brown.
