ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AND HEALING TURMERIC GUMMIES



Every year I get a cold and unfortunately it never  last a week. The cold virus seems to go straight to my lungs and I'm sick for weeks.

I've read about turmeric and saw this recipe on A squirrel in the kitchen.

When you see "gummies", I think a sweet treat. This is a healing gummie. They have honey but are not sweet.  Adjust the amount of honey to your taste.

Additional information on  Turmeric from The Blogger's Lifestyle

Ingredients:

2 cups water
1 tablespoon ground turmeric
3 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons unflavored gelatin powder


 Use a 9" x 6" ( or 2 quarts) Pyrex dish for this recipe.

Directions:

In a medium size saucepan, combine water, turmeric, honey.

 Heat on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

Check sweetness and adjust to taste. 

Remove from heat and sprinkle gelatin powder over the warm liquid.

Whisk forcefully for 1 minute, making sure all the gelatin powder is dissolved.


Pour into a dish and refrigerate for 2-3 hours, or until the gelatin is firm and you can cut it into it with a knife. Cut to the size gummie you prefer. You could also use a cookie cutter to make them in fun shapes.


Store in an airtight container. Will keep up to 7 days in the refrigerator.

  2. This sounds very interesting. I must put turmeric on my shopping list. You had told us about the benefits before, and I forgot to get it. Going to put it on now. Thanks Linda.

  4. Turmeric is a wonderful food. To use it for anti-inflammatory help, do some research on the best way to consume it. By itself it is not easily absorbed. There has been thousands of studies done on Turmeric read some of these before you use it. To get you started in your research, if I may, here is an article with links to more studies. https://www.kathleenaherne.com/turmeric-useless-get-the-truth/

  5. Good to know. Will have to look into this more. Anything to help with inflammation is worth a try. Although honey is an ingredient, you say they are not sweet. Are they bitter? Thanks! Visiting from Over the Moon Link Party #39 :)

  13. Turmeric is not well used by the body unless accompanied by some pepper. Try adding pepper to the recipe!
