Turmeric

As we move towards a healthier, Gaia-friendly diet we're finding we're eating things we've never eaten before. T'other day it was chickweed today it's turmeric.

I've cooked with turmeric powder of course but what we're talking about here is the root in its virgin form. It's very, very orange. Bite into it and it's juicy and crunchy, has a clean, medicinal taste and leaves a tingle behind.  It's something like ginger but not as fiery.
