Turmeric Elixir


Makes 1 quart of elixir (can be consumed cold or hot - I like it hot)

*1 tsp. dried turmeric (juice of fresh turmeric can also be used)
*1 whole lemon washed and then cut into quarters
*2+ tsp. peeled and grated fresh ginger
*Hot water to fill
*Honey, to taste

Place all ingredients in a 1 quart mason jar squeezing lemon quarters as you drop them in to release their juices. Use organic whenever possible and be sure to wash the lemon's rind no mater what. Fill the jar with hot water. Screw the lid on tightly and gently shake. Be careful not to burn your paws on the glass and metal of the jar. Enjoy as a warm tea-like elixir or place in refrigerator for use later. I typically fill the jar once more with water prior to composting the ingredients.

Drink daily for fabulous inflammation response and healthy digestion!
