The turmeric experiment


Nothing new and exciting to report on my jar experiment, so I’m trying something new. Further to this post about turmeric, at the farmer’s market on the weekend I found fresh turmeric. To the left is a picture of a thumb size piece. Cutting it stained both my knife and cutting board – time will tell how permanently. I tried a bite and it was really strong. I don’t recommend eating it that way (although I read kids in India do, is that true?).

I’ve planted the rhizome in potting soil and put it in a sunny location. Now I’ll wait and see what happens.
