Jumu Juice – a healing anti-inflammatory Indonesian drink made with fresh turmeric and ginger, honey ( or maple) and a squeeze of citrus. Soothing and healing to the body. Drink this cold or warm like tea.


  • 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 blender 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.

If using an electric juicer , juice whole roots. You should end up with about 1 cup  of golden liquid combined. Add a little water to the juicer to extract more of the juice if you want. Place this in a quart  jar, pitcher or container.   Feel free to fill the quart jar with water, sweetening with maple and sqeezing with citrus.



When serving this hot like tea, I tend to leave the jamu juice very concentrated, pouring a little ( 1/4 cup) into a mug then filling the mug with hot water, adding honey and lemon to taste. I like mine pretty strong, so perhaps start conservatively.)

Instead of sweetener, you could add fruit juice- pineapple is nice.

When serving the Jamu Juice chilled, I’ll often dilute more it with water , and sweeten it right in the jar, also adding the citrus to the jar , keeping it in the fridge so its ready to pour over ice.
