Jamu is an excellent refreshing traditional medicinal drink from Indonesia that is very easy to make at home. The main ingredient in Jamu is turmeric: which is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The drink is typically served cold, and the addition of honey or agave easily goes well as a sweetener to finesse the pungent taste of turmeric root. Jamu can also be served hot during the winter months.
