Or as I call it the "Elixir of Life Tea"
I'm sure I've posted this before. Here it is again as I've recently had a request for it. Because it's so fabulous.
You may drink in hot water solo andit is a tea on it's own or you can add a green tea bag so that it's tolerable to drink a green tea.
Two large tubers of Ginger.
Three or four small tubers of Tumeric (or three Tablespoons of turmeric powder if no root/tubers are available.
honey to taste after everything is done
Peel and cut into small bits the ginger and turmeric. Place in pan on stovetop with water (to cover and then some)
Bring to boil and then simmer for 45-60 minutes. Do not leave unattended for very long as you do need to add water or else you will burn it.
Keep about 1/2 to 3/4 inch water in the pan. Adding more when needed.
Set aside after the bits are soft.
Pour this into a blender when warm/cooled a bit and blend big time. The more you blend the less stringy the ginger will become.
Pour the slurry into a small glass jar with a lid. Add honey. I usually add 1/4 cup or so. I like it sweet.
Refrigerate unused portion. It will last 3+ weeks in the fridge.
Or how abou tthis for storing turemic tea? Pour a huge batch into ice cube trays. Freeze, then pop each turmeric ice cube into a containter and store in the freezer. It will last months and months! Just like your homemade salad dressing cubes.
Use one small teaspoon or cube at a time. Stir teaspoon into cup of hot water and enjoy.
I do not like green tea, so I add a green tea to the concoction and feel I am being super healthy.
If you can: take with a little bit of oil (cocount oil) and some black pepper as they mulitplies the absorption rate tremendously.
