All the spices used in this broth have travelled back and forth for centuries, along the Silk Road and were interpreted by a multitude of cultures’ palates.
Some of the star cast are Ginger, Turmeric, Black Pepper and Cloves!
Ginger: Helps you sweat out the toxins in your body, which is helpful when you have a cold or flu.
Turmeric: Powerful anti-inflammatory plus adds delicious flavour and a beautiful colour.
Black pepper: Also a very good anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial agent.
Cloves: A good natural Antiseptic with anti-inflammatory qualities as well as an effective pain reliever and also adds aromatic scent to the broth.
