One of the most basic ways to consume turmeric is to make it into a tea.
1-teaspoon of tumeric (Pure turmeric powder, grated turmeric, or ground, dried turmeric all work well.)
4 cups of hot water
Combine ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes. If any flakes, grains or pieces of turmeric remain, strain the tea before drinking it.
You can also try adding other spices or sweeteners to the tea for flavor, such as:
1 tsp of honey
1 tsp of ground cinnamon for flavor and extra anti-inflammatory effects
fresh or dried ginger for flavor and extra anti-inflammatory effects
freshly squeezed juice from a lemon or orange to add antioxidants and flavor
