My turmeric had died down, and I was concerned that it may be starting to rot with all the rain.  So I decided to dig it up.  Originally I planted just 4 small rhizomes, but harvested about a kilo, so I was very happy.

How do people like to use turmeric?  Do you have some favorite recipes?

  • Damn.  I put turmeric powder in everything I cook.  Remember to add ground black pepper as well as the turmeric.  It helps absorb the curcumin which is the anti-inflamatory element.
