Growing local

If you have ever wondered...I have.

I'm now back with the dry with high curcumin from my Spice Merchant's pepper/cinnamon blend.(LINK)

If not grown at home, price of the fresh is a killer budget item.

How do fresh turmeric and turmeric powder differ?Can you use fresh turmeric in place of turmeric powder and vice versa? When should you use fresh turmeric and when should you use turmeric powder?

I think the point to note is that powdered turmeric is fresh tumeric dried and powdered.  I suspect the powdered stuff from grocery stores is really old.  My powdered turmeric and the bought stuff are like two different foods. 

Definitely with spices age matters -- especially if they are powdered. I keep my Turmeric powder in the fridge. and only grind up the whole seed or berry of my other spices as required.
