These are not for those who do not like turmeric. The recipe I found called for a full tablespoon of ground turmeric, and as much as I love that stuff even I don’t love it THAT much. Which is why I only used a teaspoon. They are still packing that earthy flavor but it’s not as strong. My reason for making them is because I have been in a lot of pain since last week and it’s to the point where I am struggling to get out of bed.
Hence the gummies!
These are crazy easy to make and can be put into any mold you desire. I used ice cub trays that have the easy release silicone bottom and chopped them up so I can add them to my lemon honey water and breakfast/lunch broth which it is amazing in!
What you’ll need:
1 tsp ground turmeric, or up to a tablespoon if you like
1 tsp ground organic ginger, or 1 Tblsp freshly grated ginger
Juice from one organic lemon, zest too for a more intense lemon flavor
1/4 c + 1 tblsp raw organic unfiltered honey
4 Tbslp bovine gelatin, or unflavored gelatin of your choice
2 c boiling filtered water
In a medium mix bowl add turmeric, ginger, lemon juice, honey, and gelatin. Stir to combine. Set aside and bring water to boil. Add water to remaining ingredients and whisk for two minutes, or until gelatin is completely dissolved. Pour into ice cube tray, 8×8 inch square pan, or silicone candy molds. Refrigerate for an hour or overnight. Use within 7 days.
I used ice cube trays and made 17 cubes. I then chopped up the cubes and use 12 mini cubes per 11oz of hot lemon honey water and 1/4 c of mini cubes per 2 c of chicken stock. Delish!
Hope these bring you comfort and relief as they have me. If you’d like more information about the healing properties of turmeric comment below and I’ll be more than happy to share in another post.
Have a blessed day!
