THE RECIPE BELOW IS DESIGNED TO BALANCE
BEFORE YOU START
Organisation is the key to good jamu making. Start by washing and peeling your ingredients where necessary. You’ll need a large pot for boiling and a blender, but don’t worry if you can’t access one. “You can easily use the traditional method,” says Wahyudi, “just use a grater to crush ginger, turmeric or galangal.”
Jamu ingredients need to be extracted before they’re combined. Make each extraction separately and then store them in glass bottles – labelled and in the fridge – for up to 5 days. Fresher is, of course, always better.
