  • Turmeric, what do you use it for?

    I bought a big thing of turmeric, but I'm not entirely sure what to use it for except curries. How do you use it?

    I just use it in curry. I haven't thought of another use and I eat a lot of yellow mustard which gives me the benefit of the curcumin found in turmeric that I was looking for.

      Try it sprinkled on an omelet. An omelet just isn't done until it's sprinkled with turmeric.

            I sprinkle it on just about anything savory, but I also use it to help heal scars. Here is a post that has a bazillion different ideas on how to use it http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Tur...r-t221083.html (scroll down a little) =)

                I've never tried it on eggs before either, 'though at one time we used it to dye our kids Easter eggs.

                  Turmeric is related to Ginger and has anti fungal properties that are similar to that of Ginger. When you marinate your meat, having turmeric in the marinade will help prevent the food from spoiling.

                  Cinnamon is also anti fungal.

                    My mom would always use it on chicken.

                    I need to cook more chicken.

                            Throw a bit on cauliflower rice. Myself, I prefer saffron for color and flavor. Are you using it for its antiinflammatory properties? I tried the pill form and it did not help me.

                              I still eat rice, yummm. I add to it the rice, nice flavor. Chicken broth a dab of butter and slice some onions. 20 mins and it done.
