Warming Barley & Turmeric Tonic
21/10/2014 Olivia

From Amy Chaplin.

A great warming tonic for when you’re feeling under the weather. Particularly nourishing for your kidneys and yet another wonderful use of our fresh turmeric!


¼ cup barley (pearled or Chinese barley)
8 cups filtered water
2 inch piece fresh turmeric or ½ to 1 teaspoon dry turmeric
4 slices fresh ginger
Juice of half a grape fruit
Juice of half a lemon
Juice of half a lime
Raw honey to taste


  • Rinse barley and place in a medium to large pot with water.
  • Add turmeric and ginger and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Cover pot, reduce heat to low and simmer for 4 to 6 hours, or longer.
  • Remove from heat and strain into a large jar for storage.
  • When you’re ready to drink it, serve warm and add citrus juices and honey to taste.
