1/4 cup turmeric
1/2 cup water (more if needed)
1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper (makes the good stuff in the turmeric much more available inside your body)
Mix all this together in a pan, and slowly heat until it’s a thick paste - 7 to 9 minutes, adding more water if you need to. Let the mixture cool and store in a glass container in the fridge - keeps for 2 to 3 weeks. That’s it.
Now to make Golden Milk, combine a teaspoon of coconut oil, 1/4 teaspoon of the turmeric paste you made, a cup of unsweetened almond or coconut milk and a little honey, to taste. Options: add a little cinnamonor vanilla. Serve warm (being careful not to bring it to a boil).
