Golden Tumeric Paste

    Not my recipe...it is named Lily's Goldern Tumeric Paste.

    I was looking for a way to get more tumeric into my daily life for the anti inflammatory and antiparasitic properties. This fits the bill. I can add to tea or just eat a spoonful of it.

    - 1/2 cup organic tumeric
    - 1 cup water, plus 1/2 cup
    - 1/4 cup raw honey
    - 1/2 cup organic coconut oil
    - 1/2 to 1 tsp black pepper
    - 1-2 tsp combined spices: nutmeg, garam masala, cinnamon, cardomom, etc to taste
    - a pinch of salt

    How to make:

    Here is where is experimented. I simmered one cup of water with grated ginger root, peppercorns, and cloves for about 10 minutes and then filtered out the water for use in recipe. Added enough water to it to make one cup.

    Bring to boil and then add tumeric and whisk. Add spices and continue whisking. Add more water as needed. It will thicken.

    Remove from heat after 5-7 minutes. Whisk in coconut oil. Add raw honey and stir until incorporated. I also added a big pinch of red pepper.

    Pour into clean, sterile jars and cool. Store in refrigerator.

    Now I have enough for at work and home.

    I think I will add lemon grass ...

    Thanks Dawn..

    Wow, amazing!! Is it spicy, or still pretty sweet?? How long does it 'keep' in the fridge, do you know? A week or two?

    I used sterilized canning jars when preparing this and stored them in the fridge. Those three jars lasted me about two months. Actually, I liked taking it straight off the spoon with a chaser of warm green tea. It had a very light sweetness to it. You could drop the raw honey, if you prefer a more savory flavor.

    Neat! Maybe I can chase it with warm lemon water. No green tea for me.

    BTW your jars are stunning - are they vintage?

    Sounds great and I'll play with the honey...seems by body doesn't like it too much. These hormones of mine are currently raging (though right now it's a welcome thing LOL) and I find the less honey, the better. Though 1/4 c isn't much.

    Thanks again...

    I also inadvertently added seaweed ...didn't read the package! I thought I was adding star anise!
    which I think would be awesome in it....

    In my latest batch, I increased the amount of grated ginger root to about a half cup and simmered it in the water for 15 minutes first. Wow, it has a very nice bite to it! Of course, I love ginger root.

    Added organic cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and a lot of freshly ground pepper.

    Are you just making a paste of tumeric and coconut oil for healing?
    I have been making a paste of cayenne pepper and coconut oil for arthritis

    paste of turmeric+honey--manuka or local. or paste of turmeric + coco oil. turmeric+ginger applied as a poultice w/a hot compress is also very effective for mastitis and other inflammations of the breast.
