I like turmeric. but drinking a cup seems way more then I would think is needed.. a shotglass out be enough..

or better yet as a spice in foods..

MF,

I've only eaten in an Indian restaurant a few times and that was a long time ago.

But, fast forward, to the present and ever since I got the book "Healing Spices" from my library by an Indian researcher I am sold on Indian Spices.  

I bought about 20 spices at MySpiceSage.com.  It is a very user-friendly site and explains not only degrees of hotness, how spices taste, but they also have recipes.  The thing I really like is you can purchase a small amount to see if you like it.  They always throw in a "free" spice with each order.

Now what am I going to do with 4 oz. of whole cloves? (which by the way in the book states it can be used to make toothache pain disappear.  

I am going for gum surgery this week so maybe it's a good idea to have it on hand!

I use it in just about anything.  Although I admit, I haven't tried it on fruits.  But in rice, salads, meat, veggies, whatever.  It's really good for you.

JJR,

I just "discovered tumeric (haha)" myself.  Since reading the book Healing Spices I found out about its beneficial properties.  I also only used the ground spice.  

If you're going to use it in powdered form only also try it on scrambled eggs.  

I only started buying the whole tumeric root recently when I saw it in WholeFoods.  Niagreen mentioned she's using it and her uncle drinks tumeric root that's been blended with water and boiled.  

But here's the thing he also incorporates it into his smoothies.  Coming up with a tasty combination for a smoothie  sometimes takes a few tries.  The tumeric root even blended with water is still bitter so when you add sweeter fruits like apple, pineapple, etc. it masks that bitterness.   I also use Acai smoothie packs also purchased at WF (acai being a big energy booster).

So I'm glad to hear that you find tumeric beneficial as others have.

I definitely feel better and more balanced when I take turmeric (Scienca).

It's great!

I have never seen Tumeric root in the produce section of the grocery store.  Do you have to have the fresh root for this mixture to work?


I've seen it at the local hfs.

I'm going to have to look for the root, it is a superfood diamond on my swami. I forget about it sometimes, glad I found this thread!

The tumeric root which I've only seen in Whole Foods, at least in my area, is versatile.  

You can chop it up and saute it with ginger and garlic.  I bought some cheap plastic gloves for my hands because it is the devil to get that orange off your hands and the counter.

After sauting with tumeric root,  fresh ginger, and fresh garlic I use my slicer on a zucchini and add that.

The zucchini cooks within minutes so keep an eye on it.  I also add Indian spices like ground curry,
black cumin seeds, fenugeek seeds to add even more flavor.  Lately I've thrown in some sliced turkey.  

For me it's a "one pan" dish.  

You can also slice fresh tumeric up and put into a salad with butter crunch lettuce and chopped parsley, avocado and the dressing of your choice.

Love those one-pan dishes Joy.

Here is a rave for tumeric spiced nuts.

Yesterday I heated a small cast iron pan, melted a good knob of butter and a slosh of olive oil gently, threw in a crushed clove of garlic, cup of organic raw macadamia nuts and a slosh of maple syrup; let them bubble and foam away gently browning and toasting the nuts til golden - (not burnt)

The butter, oil and syrup coat the nuts beautifully, tipped them onto a plate & dusted with ground: tumeric, allspice, coriander seed, cayenne and sea salt. Tossed them around a bit until coated, could not wait, burnt my tongue   once cooled they were sticking together like brittle

Honeybee,

Looks like you're going to have to set a few extra places for me and Goldie and anyone else who reads this.  Of course, if there's any that's left over!!!

Just checked typebase food values and macademia nuts are a neutral for A's.  You know, I've been looking for a "snack food" that I can make rather than buy from the store.

I just finished the one pan zucchini dish I described and it was delish!  I wish I had the ingredients for the spiced nuts.  Actually, I have most of them probably except the nuts.

Tomorrow is another day!

I bet those nuts would be just as good with a different variety, say something from the beni list

I just thought I'd check the "nut list" because grey rabbit is an A also.  Macademia nuts are a neutral and I haven't had them in a very long time.

On the bennie list are pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds (neutrals).  They make a nice mix.
And, of course, walnuts are a bennie.

I'd say we have a good choice and can change them for a variety.

thanks again honeybee.

I use tumeric in my apple, carrot, lemon and ginger juice - put them through the champion juicer and it is so energising.  Tumeric blends in well with ginger.
Almonds and hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts and pinenuts, sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds are a few of the superfood nuts and seeds that are on my swami (43% warrior, 38% teacher or thereabouts!)

Yuuuummmm!!  As soon as I read this this morning I had to try it - I didn't have everything on hand but I used the butter and olive oil, macadamias and walnuts, maple syrup, then tossed them in Himalayan pink salt, turmeric and a tiny bit of cayenne.  They are really nice and I can't wait to try out other seeds and nuts with this.  I also went to the shops this afternoon and bought some allspice to add.  The walnuts were particularly delicious - not sure if it's because they are diamonds for me or maybe everyone would think they were nice.  

Thank you Honeybee for sharing

Gotta fess up tho guys, I didn't invent this, it is an appropriation of many similar recipes I found online  

Also I edited my OP to include the crushed garlic too - it is important for garlic fiends lol

So glad you enjoyed them! Pecans and walnuts would be delish.

You could also adapt if you wanted a sweet only version (cinnamon, nutmeg, cardomom, allspice etc)

Having discussed turmeric with several people from India (10 people at work, and other in passing), I have been told that turmeric is a well use antiseptic and is applied to cuts and abrasions. I tried it once but didn't take note of much as I'm a fast healer when it comes to cuts and abrasions. But this is what they tell me.

That does sound really good.  I need to try that juice.  I have just done carrot sometimes.  I have yet to do a blend when juicing.

JJR,

Just a suggestion.  I don't put my tumeric in the smoothie anymore because I'm always using it either in a salad or cooking with it.

Before you mix everything together slice up the tumeric and put in the blender and add water.  This only takes a few seconds.  Then I strain the mix and add it to the ingredients in the juice.

It makes for a much smoother juice.
