- ½ cup fresh turmeric roots, rinsed, no need to peel
- 3/4 cup fresh ginger roots, rinsed, no need to peel
- 4 cups water
- honey or maple to taste
- squeeze of lemon lime or citrus to taste
If making in a blender, slice the turmeric and ginger into thin disks (leave skin on) place in a blende and add 2 cups water. Blend for about 1 minute. Let stand a few minutes, strain into bowl, then pour into a quart jar, add remaining two cups of water. ( If drinking this hot, feel free to leave out the remaining two cups- see notes) You can either add the sweetener and citrus to the jar, or add to your glass when serving.
