Now that the jars have settle and the solution is now fairly clear I am ready to collect the tricombs.
I start with a jar that has the band tightened slightly on my drying screen. To tight and you may rip the screen or it may swell up and be hard to get the band off. I push the screen down so I have a pocket like this.
The pocket allows me to pour the water off the top and filter threw the screen. I first pour as much water as I can off the top. If I see the layer at the bottom get disturbed I will either let it settle again or pour it threw the screen. I am not saving the water so if and thing is floating in it that will be thrown out. So I go gentle or I filter it.
I do this to both jars. When I get to the bottom I scrap the sediment out with my spoon and drop it into the pocket in the drying screen. At this time I will use my medicine dropper to wash the jar sides and the spoon off and into the drying screen.
After the water has filtered out of the screen I will fold the screen in half. The screen is then put between a folded over towel. By pushing on the towel I dry the hash. Just keep moving the screen to a new dry spot till you have most of the water out of the hash.
After I have done this I place the hash onto a piece of wax paper for a final drying. In the next picture you see my first jar on the left and the second jar on the right. As you can see there was about the same amount in the second jar as I got from the first jar.
I then can use this cleaned up hash to cook with. It gives a more accurate dosing amount when weighed as it is not full of a random amount of leaf. I also use this to make caramels with as it makes for a smother texture. Because the leaf material is not there to give a gritty feel when eating it. Not to mention you removed a bunch of bad tasting leaf.
Here is a link to the caramel tutorial.
