Servings: 1 litre / 4 mugs
- 2 large navel orange
- 1/2 unwaxed lemon
- 1/2 inch fresh turmeric root
- 1 cinnamon stick

- 8 pink peppercorns
- Fill a saucepan with 800ml water.
- Slice half of one orange into round slices, squeeze the juice of the remaining oranges and add to the saucepan.
- Slice the lemon half and finely grate the ginger and turmeric root (careful - turmeric stains your skin!) and add to the pan along with the peppercorns and cinnamon stick. Gently heat the pan for 15 minutes to let the flavours infuse.
