Scale

Ingredients

  • 45 cups spring water
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon ginger or 1 tbsp fresh ginger root
  • 1/4 cups or more lemon juice or juice of 1 lemon
  • Lemon Slices
  • 24 tablespoon maple syrup or raw honey (adjust to desired sweetness)
  • 1 tsp Optional Lemon extract or lemon powder (such as true lemon)
  • Optional Stevia to sweeten more if desired
  • Optional pinch of black pepper to activate curcumin in turmeric
  • Fresh Mint leaves

Instructions

  1. Bring water to a light boil on the stove.  Add in your spices and let it boil again for a minute, then reduce and simmer turmeric for 10 minutes. Remove from the stove and let it cool a bit. Then strain the liquid to get rid of excess ginger root or spice powder. Strain with a mesh strainer or cloth. Pour the rest of the liquid into a pitcher along with your lemon juice, extracts, and sweetener of choice. Mix again so that the maple syrup and lemon juice are combined with the turmeric ginger brew. x
  2. Garnish with extra lemon slices, fresh mint, and store in fridge. Add ice if desired but note it will dilute flavor.
  3. **Notes*- Simmering will extract the beneficial compounds from the turmeric and ginger
