½ cup Turmeric Powder (Organic if possible—you can even make your own by buying fresh, peeling, slicing into thin strips and placing in a dehydrator for 6-8 hours. Then simply mill in a Nutri-Bullet or food processor)
1 cup Filtered Water
¼ cup cold pressed organic coconut oil
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
- Place the turmeric and water in a pan.
- Stir over low/medium heat for 7-10 minutes. It will start to thicken after a couple of minutes.
- Remove from heat, add the pepper and oil and stir briskly until oil is incorporated.
- Place your mixture in a sterilised glass jar with a lid.
This mixture will last up to two weeks in the refrigerator.
