Pineapple and Turmeric Jamu Jamu

Serves 6 Prep Time 5 minutes   Rated:


When I managed to get my one trip to Bali in this year (in January 2020) I was amazed at the jamu jamu bar at Potato Head Club. It inspired me to create a few recipes, all of which now appear on this site. So get to it, and begin enlightenment with jamu...not once, but twice. Jamu jamu! (Jamu means herb as well as prayer, and we have way more than two in these does that make them jamu, jamu, jamu?)

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. ⁠
