Lemon Turmeric Ginger Tonic

Delicious hot or cold - cheers!

  • 1/2 cup freshly grated turmeric root
  • 2/3 cup freshly grated ginger root
  • 8 cups water
  • Few sprinkles of Redman's Real Salt or sea salt
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp raw honey (or to preferred sweetness)

Bring water to a boil while preparing your roots. First, peel roots of their skin with a potato peeler, then shred roots by using a microplane/ the smallest side of your grater. You may want to throw on a glove for this part, unless you like the look of yellow hand and nails.Turmeric STAINS (but it's only temporary). I grate the roots directly into the boiling water. Once turmeric and ginger are in the boiling water, cover and allow your tonic to simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Add juice of 1 lemon, raw honey, and a few sprinkles of salt once the tonic has simmered. Taste, and adjust to your preferred sweetness or tartness. Allow to simmer for 10 more minutes. Once the tonic has cooled, strain out all root pulp, and store in refrigerator. Reheat on the stove for a warm yummy tonic, or drink over ice for a refreshing cool down.

Enjoy.
