Turmeric Root

Check this out! I found turmeric in whole-root-form and I didn't have to go very far. Just the co-op! This turmeric root highly resembles the looks and feel of a ginger root. It's super-orange like a carrot. I haven't used it yet because I bought it last night (for 93 cents an ounce, this one was 90 cents total and is about 4 inches long). I think I'm gonna make a bunch more falafel, but who knows. I made my own curry powder last night but only enough to make a total of 1/2 teaspoon (for the Earthy Lentil Soup), so I really only needed a pinch of ground turmeric. I wasn't going to cut/peel into this for such a little amount. Stay tuned...

Oh, and if you want to get your hands on some of this, and live nearby, go to Gentle Strength (co-op). It's in the basket by the bulk herbs/spices and it will only be there until the basket is gone.

I just found out that turmeric is in the ginger family and has very similiar characterisics other than asthetics. It is native to India.
