Food based glycerin tincture in Edibles?
Posted 22 October 2011 - 08:07 PM
I have a tincture of 10mg/mL that was infused in 1 fl oz of food based glycerin and honey.
Was wondering if I could just like make brownies and dump the tincture in while I am mixing the recipe? I'd rather feel the digestive aspects of the tincture than the sublingual.

just so you know. i love you. hahaha
Your tincture is best used in drinks if you're new to cooking... I have made many successful batches of brownies, and cupcakes and such, using tincture, but glycerin is a powerful vapor vehicle and you will lose some small amount of potency, mostly from the outer edges of your baked goods, and you can risk losing it all very rapidly if you cook for just a little too long.
Even when using glycerin as a simple sweetener alone, they recommend starting with more than you'll need when baking or cooking with it, because it really does vape off that easily.
"A little goes a long way.... However, when the glycerine is heated, some of its flavor evaporates, so you may wish to use a little more in cooked products. It is best to mix it into sauces after they have cooked" - Wholistic Research - Vegetable Glycerin, a plant-based sugar substitute
So baked goods are certainly possible if you are careful, however, you can easily and safely make truffles, soups, peanut butter canna bombs, frosting for your brownies, and more, using glycerin tincture. When heat is involved, if you have the option you should add your required number of doses at the end of heating.
