Renewing the Mind, Body, and Spirit through juicing

Using Fresh Turmeric Root

Most people buy turmeric in powder form but you can also use fresh turmeric root in your recipes and home remedies. When working with fresh turmeric root, be aware that it stains … badly. Use gloves and make sure not to get it on anything that is easily stained like white counter tops or clothes.  You’ll want to peel the turmeric before using it. The easiest way is to rub it with the edge of a spoon but you can also use a potato peeler.   Fresh turmeric root can be juiced just like ginger. Use the juice alone in soups, salad dressing, and sauces or include it in your favorite healthy juice recipe.  It’s not as easy to find turmeric root in stores as it is to find ginger root. Your best bet in finding it is to head to your local Indian or Asian market. Whole Foods also carries it in some locations.
