Turmeric Tea

Photography by Angie Norwood Browne

Turmeric is an amazing root. It can be made into a tea and drank twice a day to improve your metabolism, and help you shed those hard to lose extra pounds.

It also helps with inflammation and has many health benefits.

2c. turmeric root washed and chopped

1/2 lime

1T. honey

hot water

Wash turmeric roots and brush with vegetable brush.  Place roots in food processor or high powered blender and blend into a paste, add a little water to get a smooth consistency. Put 1 1/2 tablespoons of turmeric in a cup with 1/2 squeezed lime and one tablespoon honey. Pour in hot water, stir and drink it down. It surprisingly tastes good!

Store extra turmeric paste in freezer, and it will stay good for a year.

This tea can be made with turmeric powder. Just use 1 teaspoon with same recipe.

About anbphoto

I never thought I'd start a blog because I'm not a writer. I am a Southern Catholic girl, a commercial food Photographer and an avid gardener. I have always wanted to journal my garden; growing food (fruit, herbs and vegetables), photographing ingredients from earth to plate and sharing the recipes I love. Someone suggested that I forget about all the writing and simply share my photographs and recipes. Perfect! My blog is an exploration of home gardening and cooking, so here is a little history of me and how "Stray Cats and Blackberries" came about. Born and raised in Alabama, my love for food lies in Southern cuisine. I learned early on that life is a party revolving around friends and family sharing food and wine. Backyard Summer bbqs, black eyed peas and collard greens on New Year's Day or ham and chocolate on Easter are just a few favorite Southern traditions I love sharing. I became fascinated with gardening when my husband and I bought our first house. I am a mother, a wife and someone who appreciates the little treasures and traditions in life. My garden started as an empty parking lot behind a Mom & Pop grocery store that my husband and I bought and renovated into a photography studio. While my husband put on his carpenter pants I put on my gardening gloves. Thirteen dumpsters at three tons each and nearly three years later I had a plantable space to sew seeds. I have been a food photographer and gardener for over 20 years and love the idea of merging my passions by growing food, photographing my harvest and sharing recipes with you. Enjoy
