Does turmeric taste like ginger? I wonder if I could do that with my ginger chunks.
It is a lot like ginger, yes!
Did you slice it thin and saute it in oil, like a stir-fry?
Actually, I just put the whole finger in and cooked it like a small potato. Medium heat, basking in coconut and fat drippings until it should have been soft. It was cooked and edible all the way through, but not really soft. It ate like a slightly old carrot. Strong spice. Very satisfying.
I believe I've read that, in order to get maximum benefit from turmeric's antiangiogenic compounds, it should be eaten with ginger or black pepper.
