    DIY Tumeric Powder

    A sistren of mine suggested I freeze it and then grate it, but this technique is an ancient one used by Indian people here in the Caribbean. I'm not sure why mine is a little browner, will try the method of not boiling and freezing the rhizomes instead.

    Just found this great article that explains why it's boiled, explained as 'curing': http://www.turmericforhealth.com/general-info/how-to-make-turmeric-powder-at-home-from-raw-turmeric

    Splizzas: Split Pea Flour Pizzas!

    Thanks for commenting! The dough is nice and thin and has a very strong peas taste. I really like it as a compliment to whatever seasonings and toppings you like.

    Hi there, i'm not sure where you are. Here in the Caribbean it's quite common. Maybe you can try an Ethnic store or an Indian grocery for sure should have some. Good luck!

    Hi Peter, you're not being rude but being open to the cultural references to a particular place and culture should be considered before commenting. There is the saffron flower, and there's also the root that most Indian people call 'saffron' as well. While it may be attributed to the colour it produces, that is the common name here. Petroleum jelly has been used for ages on children as a lubricant, while more organic sources are being recommend and sourced now, it is still common for a lot of people as a cheap and easily available carrier gel/oil.

    You're welcome! Thanks for commenting :)

    Hi Peter, is it that you don't like saffron? It is very strong medicine but one that's just too good not to have in your herbal medicine kit. The petroleum jelly can be replaced with a more organic carrier oil, like virgin coconut oil.

    So glad I could share it with you! Please, try it at home. Would love to hear how you plan to use your own fresh tumeric powder.
