Bali’s Gelato Secrets Introduces Jamu Sorbettos

Three recipes based in hand-ground local herbs and spices have been adapted into sorbettos, including turmeric-based jamu kunyit asam for detoxification, ginger-based wedang jahe for aiding digestion and cold and flu symptoms, and mixed-spice jamu beras kencur for bolstering the immune system and soothing physical fatigue. Gelateria as pharmacy—now that’s a cool combination.
