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.
