Recently we needed a recipe for a healthier pineapple ginger turmeric syrup to do some tropical drink recipes. We found some easy ways to do them online but as usual found improvements we could make. There are still improvements, as usual, given the lack of whole foods sweetener.
Martha Stewart has a recipe for the pineapple ginger syrup and we added a little turmeric and substituted to help us get to the recipe we wanted. You can use stevia for sugar. Here is what we came up with.
Pineapple Ginger Turmeric Syrup
- Sauce Pan
- Sharp knife
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- ¼ cup Ginger Sliced
- 1 ½ cup pineapple Rind and core
- 4 cups Water
- 1 teaspoon Stevia
- Cut a pineapple into wedges and save the core and skin, this is actually what you need.
- Add the ingredients to a saucepan and boil until you reduce the 4 cups water to 1 cup.
- Strain and chill until you need to use, bearing in mind that it will go bad as it is a whole food.
Our mission at healthythairecipes.com was born from my trying to rehab my wife's native Thai recipes to be as healthy as possible for both of us.
We like the whole foods, avoid processed ingredients approach. What is healthy for us may not be healthy for you though as your situation is fact dependent.
I like to say, when in doubt, check it out with a doctor or dietitian, if you have concerns.
When it comes to food safety, When in doubt, throw it out, if you think an ingredient is questionable.
