Beetroot Raspberry Jamu Jamu

Serves 6 Prep Time 12 hours   Rated:


I discovered jamu jamu quite a few years ago on one of my Bali jaunts. Then earlier this year I was hosted by Potato Head Club and Katamama in Seminyak and they served us jamu every day. I was taken by the colours and options available. It had never occured to me you could pretty much put anything you liked into the tonic. It is not quite kombucha, but you can allow it to ferment slightly at room temperature for a few days, though ours never lasts that long.

The word jamu comes from the Javanese language, Jampi and Usada. Jampi means mantra, usada means medicine for health. So Jamu is a prayer or medicine to improve health. ⁠

Anyway, I decided to do a video for you, it is super simple. And kind of fun to make up mixtures. We did three on the video, this is one of them!
