#1. Ginger-Turmeric Jamu Concentrate

Fresh turmeric root is often used in various herbal tonics and refreshing beverages. This rhizome plant is native to Southeastern Asia and has been used in cooking and healing rituals for over 4,000 years.

Though it can have a slightly pungent flavor at times, it has a pleasantly bitter and robust taste that can be used to intensify other spices. Its peppery flavor works well when paired with roasted vegetables or potatoes, but one of the best uses for this golden spice is in beverages.

A staple in ancient Indonesian herbal traditions

In ancient Indonesia, community healers and female family members used the island's local plants, herbs, and roots to create soothing tonics known as Jamu. Turmeric was one of the many natural ingredients that frequented these drinks, and it continues to be used in Indonesian Jamu to this day.

An easy-to-use and handy Jamu concentrate is the perfect way to take advantage of the countless health benefits of turmeric. With a handful of natural ingredients, you can make a few jars of concentrate to later enjoy in a variety of drinks!

How to make your turmeric Jamu concentrate

Add 1 cup fresh ginger powder and 1/3 cup turmeric powder to 4 to 5 cups of boiling water.

Let it simmer on medium heat as you slowly and frequently stir. After some time, the powdered turmeric and ginger should begin to expand and thicken. This should take about 5 to 10 minutes.

Next, add 1/2 cup palm sugar and a 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Continue to stir for another 2 minutes, or until the sugar is fully dissolved.

Remove from the heat, and let the mixture cool. Feel free to add any other spices or ingredients like honey, lime, or tamarind for a more full-bodied flavor.

#2. Herbal Turmeric Tea

Herbal tea with turmeric is a natural way to soothe an upset stomach and boost your mood. Herbal teas with turmeric root are popular in ancient Jamu wellness customs and modern-day wellness practices alike.

For a sweet tea, simply mix 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric with maple syrup to taste. Pour 1 cup boiling water over the top, and stir well.

If you're on the go, you can also just use tea sachets that contain some of this health-boosting spice. The Soothing Island Comfort Green Tea from JUARA is a creamy green tea blend of pineapple, ginger, and turmeric, and is excellent for promoting better joint health and enhancing your daily diet.

#3. Turmeric Latte

Touted as "Golden Milk," turmeric lattes have become a frenzied favorite in Western cultures. Simply simmer coconut milk and honey and add some ground turmeric powder.

You'll be left with a steaming cup of deliciousness!

What are the health benefits of fresh turmeric root?

Though the spicy taste and flavor-enhancing properties of turmeric are enticing enough, the real kick comes from the many wellness benefits of this golden root. The main bioactive compound, curcumin, has extensive anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties and is behind the iconic bright yellow color of turmeric.

Curcumin may be able to reduce the risk of heart disease, alleviate pain, and stabilize blood sugar. In fact, an increased intake of curcumin in turmeric has even been shown to improve brain function.
