Fresh Turmeric Is Good for Health and 8 Delicious Ways To Use It

How do I prepare fresh turmeric ?

1. Have a caffeine-free pep with turmeric tea
Add one inch of peeled and grated fresh turmeric with the juice of quarter of a lemon with a pinch of ground black pepper (the chemical piperine in black pepper helps with the absorption of curcumin in turmeric) and 300ml of hot water. If you’d like even more of a zing, add half an inch of peeled and sliced or grated fresh ginger too. Enjoy straightaway and adjust the quantities to your liking.

2. Blend in a smoothie
You can add into your favourite juices and smoothies like you would ginger. Include with fellow orange-fleshed carrot in a juice with oranges or try added into your super-green morning smoothie.

3. Add punch to your eggs
Turmeric goes down a treat in egg dishes. Grate a little of the fresh stuff into your scrambled eggs, omelettes and frittatas for a new take on your egg-pertoire. Also try it finely grated then added to whisked eggs to make an egg wash for pastry on samosas or pies that’ll give you an amazing golden yellow color to the top ! 

4. Shake up your salads with a stick up
Very thinly slice fresh turmeric into matchsticks and add a little to liven up a cabbage and carrot coleslaw, fresh leafy green salads or the humble potato salad.

5. Blend in a yogurt dressing
Take 1 inch of peeled and grated fresh turmeric and blend with 50 ml of extra virgin olive oil, 1 clove of garlic, 1 tsp of runny honey and 50 ml of yogurt. Add water a tablespoon at a time until get your desired consistency (we like it looser than yogurt, but runny enough to drizzle). Enjoy drizzled over roasted vegetables and with pinch of ground chilies sprinkled over for an extra kick.

6. Pickle it up
Slice 250 gm of fresh peeled turmeric into chunky matchsticks and add the juice of 3 lemons and 1 tsp of salt. Put into a jar with a lid and keep in the fridge for at least 4 days to allow the flavor to develop, shaking it occasionally. Add slices of green chilies or a 1 tsp of mustard and/or fennel seeds if you’d like more layers of spice and heat and use within a month.

7. Maximize your marinades
Combine with your usual marinade suspects of olive oil, garlic, black pepper and fresh herbs such as coriander, parsley or mint. Try out our Turmeric Cauliflower Steaks recipe for a wonderful South Indian inspired supper.

8. Settle down to a cup of hot golden milk
Throw 1 inch of peeled and grated fresh turmeric into a medium-sized saucepan with 300 ml of milk (whether cow’s, oat, or almond milk, use whichever you prefer). Heat until warmed through but don’t allow to boil. Strain and add honey to taste. 

How to store fresh turmeric
Wrap in a paper towel and store in the fridge inside a Tupperware or airtight bag where it will keep for a couple of weeks. Don’t intend on using it all at once which can be stored in your freezer.

How long does fresh turmeric last ?
Fresh turmeric will keep in the fridge for a couple of weeks. When frozen, it’ll last for up to six months.
