cannabis trash... a couple of shopping bags full.
3 large bowls (pref stainless steel)
1 small bowl
1 paper coffee filter
1 darning needle
I usually start this in the evening and let it simmer overnight.
First collect the trash

Stir well until all the leaf is coated in the melted butter

Add enough hot water to make the consistency of thick soup

Turn slowcooker to high setting and leave until water begins to bubble, stir and turn down to low. Before you go to bed, stir and top up the water if necessary.
In the morning your trash will have darkened considerably

Turn cooker off and as it cools collect the remaining equipment.

Set the seive over one of the large bowls, fill the potato ricer about halfway with cooked trash and squeeze

Empty ricer into a small container and set aside

Repeat until you have skimmed close to all the trash out of the cooker, pour remaining water etc through the seive and collect in the bowl

Set aside to cool and collect the greasy utensils

Rinse with hot water, collecting all the runoff in another large bowl and add the trash you put aside earlier and stir

Strain the mixture again through the ricer and seive and collect in the third bowl... if the trash still feels very greasy you may want to increase the heat of the water and strain for a third time.
Now the hard part... find enough room in the fridge to set out your bowls... try not to remove your housemate's snags and bacon if possible

That concludes the first stage.. cooking and initial straining.
I'll post the next stage once the butter has solidified.
