Turmeric Elixir

 

I posted this picture on Instagram a couple of days ago and people really seemed to want to know how to make it and how it was served. I love it. It’s like a spicy lemonade and turmeric is very anti inflammatory. So it’s a win win.

If you want a education on just how good turmeric can be for you, check this article out. My grandmother takes it to keep her arthritis in check. I find that it really helps if I’m having an allergy attack. I would love to know if any of you use turmeric or have any concoctions that you like to mix up.

I would love to try this with fresh turmeric root, but I haven’t seen it around yet. You can serve this drink hot or cold. Sometimes I will put a little mint in it. Also the ratios aren’t set in stone, so have some fun with it.

    This sounds so good. I'm equally intrigued with growing turmeric now. It sounds like you can find it at Asian markets and plant pieces of the rhizome or buy from here: http://stokestropicals.plants.com/Curcuma-domestica-Longa-P80.aspx

    I was going to wait until I got up to the Asian Markets before I ordered any, but now you have me thinking I can't wait;)

    Desi you're the bomb. I bought turmeric so I can make this but now I see I need cardamom, too. You're opening up the world of spices to me!
