What is turmeric? It’s that brilliant yellow-orange home grown root that influences curries to look yellow. Turmeric is part the ginger family and has been a staple in Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian cooking for a huge number of years. Yet, there’s significantly more to this clear root than meets the eye. It is known to be a standout amongst the most effectively mending herbs on the planet…
When you first drink this, moderate your intake. Too much, and you may experience detox symptoms since it is such a strong liver detoxifier!
7-10 inches of fresh turmeric root, peeled and grated (most health food stores carry it and some Asian markets do as well)
1 quart fresh water
1 TBS tamarind paste
1/4 cup date sugar
juice of 2 lemons
Place all ingredients into a large glass container, mix well and refrigerate overnight.
Strain and serve.
*NOTE: the turmeric may stain your strainer! I just used a mild solution of soapy bleach water to remove it.
