Turmeric Honey:


  • 1/4 cup honey, preferrably local, raw, unpastuerized honey
  • 12” fresh turmeric root OR 1-2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • pinch of black pepper


  1. If using fresh turmeric, use a spoon to peel the papery skin. Scrape the side of a spoon across the turmeric in a back and forth motion and the skin will peel away. Use a microplane of fine grater to shred the fresh turmeric.
  2. If using ground turmeric, measure 1-2 teaspoons.
  3. Stir turmeric into 1/4 cup honey and add a pinch of black pepper- this helps our bodies absorb the active compound called curcumin from the turmeric!
  4. Store in the fridge for 1-3 weeks. Fresh turmeric honey won’t last as long as ground turmeric honey.


** If using ground turmeric, you should be able to keep this at room temperature. Using fresh turmeric to make this honey will require you to store in the fridge.

** To make a turmeric honey shot: Add 2 tablespoons water, 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar or lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon turmeric honey to a glass. Stir to combine and cheers to good health!
