I first experienced Jamu when a friend offered me some from a thermos on a cold winter's day in the Adelaide Hills where we live. It was warming and full-bodied and really gave me a pep up! I have found a few recipes and mashed them together to make this version...
125g fresh tumeric, washed and sliced thinly
20g fresh ginger, washed and sliced thinly - you can add more if you want a real kick!
4 cups of coconut water or water
Pinch black pepper
2 Tb honey/sweetener
Juice of 1 lemon
Place first 4 ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Add to saucepan and simmer for 20 minutes
Strain mixture through fine sieve or similar
Add 2 tablespoons of honey and juice of 1 lemon
Enjoy warm or cool - a shot a day keeps the ...... away!
