1lb of turmeric root
FINALLY ordered fresh turmeric root thru Amazon from a company in California. Looked high and low for it in two states around where I live, but no luck finding it. Fresh organic ginger root yes, turmeric no.
Ordered it Friday morning, it shipped within a couple of hours. Arrived yesterday and now I need to start processing some of it for tinctures. I will be planting the smaller nubs and a couple fingers in pots to grow my own for later use and the rest will store in the fridge or freezer for cooking.
Will be making the tincture with apple cider vinegar as hubby can't have alcohol based tinctures. I will probably make a smaller bottle with alcohol just to see how that goes and give me a chance to compare the two methods. The I will use myself, but for use at work the vinegar base would be best. Tho seriously spiked coffee to get me thru the day at times is so tempting LOL!
Can't wait to see how the fresh root works in recipes. So used to using the turmeric powder.
