Turmeric has significant anti-inflammatory properties.
What's in it
1/3 cup / 80 ml good, raw honey
2 1/2 teaspoons dried turmeric
lots of freshly ground black pepper
How to cook it
- Work the turmeric into the honey until it forms a paste. You can keep this on hand, in a jar, for whenever you'd like a cup.
- For each cup of tea, place a heaping teaspoon of the turmeric paste in the bottom of a mug. Pour mildly hot (but not boiling water, to help preserve the properties of the raw honey) into the mug, and stir well to dissolve the turmeric paste. Add a big squeeze of juice from a lemon, and a good amount of black pepper. Enjoy! Stir now and then as you drink so all the good stuff doesn't settle to the bottom, or top off with more hot water as you drink it.
- Turmeric tends to stain anything it comes into contact with, so be careful. Option: You can you the turmeric/honey paste to blend into a smoothie, or swirl it into yogurt.
