If you don’t use turmeric in your cooking frequently, you might want to
try Turmeric tea.
Before I tried it, I was concerned that it might have a strong,
disagreeable taste. It doesn’t. I find the flavor rather mild.
Here’s how I make the tea …
I put about 3/4 tsp of turmeric in a small glass pot with about 3 cups
of water. Bring to a boil then simmer for 10 minutes. Let cool. Pour
into a cup slowly, leaving the sediment in the bottom of the pot.
Sip throughout the day.
