We have a choice of turmeric powder available, including fair trade turmeric and organic turmeric. We then have a budget culinary turmeric and a guaranteed 5.1% curcumin turmeric too. The recipe below can be used to make turmeric paste.
Place turmeric and water in a pan, stirring over a gentle heat until you have a thick paste. This should take around 7-10mins. You may need to add a little additional water or turmeric along the way to get a good thick consistency. Grind the pepper and add the ground pepper and oil at the end of cooking. Stir well –a whisk is ideal.
Once cooled, place in the fridge and use within 2 week. Can be frozen up to 6 months.
