Strawberry & Turmeric Thai Tea Jam Bakery Style Muffins

Strawberry season may be a month away, but we’ve been dreaming about all the delicious ways to enjoy these mouthwatering morsels of summer sweetness. We decided to make a strawberry jam with our Turmeric Thai Tea and swirl it into a tasty muffin batter, and then top it with a bakery style sugar-y crumb topping! 

Strawberry Turmeric Thai Tea Bakery Style Muffins

Yields 1 dozen jumbo muffins 

For the Tanglewood Turmeric Thai Tea Strawberry Jam

1 ½ pounds fresh or frozen strawberries, hulled and quartered

1 ½ ounces granulated sugar

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

5 ounces Tanglewood Turmeric Thai Tea concentrate

For the muffins

3 cups all purpose flour

1 cup granulated sugar

1 Tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon turmeric powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 ⅕ cups yogurt

2 eggs

8 Tablespoons butter, melted

1 ¼ cups prepared Turmeric Thai Tea strawberry jam, room temp

For the crumb topping

½ cup all purpose flour

½ cup brown sugar

1 ½ teaspoon turmeric powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Pinch salt

½ cup butter, cubed and cold

Pour all of the ingredients in a medium-sized pot over medium-high heat. Once the mix begins to boil, lower to a simmer and allow it to cook down to at least half in volume, about 30-40 minutes.

While the jam is simmering, prepare the muffins. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a jumbo muffin pan with paper liners or generously grease the pan with oil.

In a large bowl whisk the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients together with a rubber spatula. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until just combined, don't overmix. Set aside.

In a separate bowl whisk together the dry crumb ingredients then add the cubed butter and mix with a pastry blender or fork until combined. 

Fill your muffin tin with the batter about ¾ the way full. Generously top each muffin with the crumb mixture. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.  

As always, best enjoyed with a Turmeric Thai Tea latte!
