Turmeric day lovelies

I’m amazed at how easy preparing turmeric powder was. How superb the final product has turned out.

I started with a beautiful product: grown spray-free fresh turmeric.

I just scraped it, sliced it, and put it in my dehydrator for most of the day. Then I milled it. Beautiful fresh-smelling powerful turmeric powder.

Now my turmeric lattes take on a whole new meaning and taste of course.

Turmeric latte

I use my own almond milk, made in a flash.

1 cup of almonds soaked in water for about 8 hours. Strain then put nuts in the blender. Add 1 cup of fresh cold water. Blend until a good thick paste. Add 3 more cups of water, and blend. Strain thru a nut bag.
You can add a spoonful of maple syrup or honey, but I don’t.

Oh, back to the latte

  • Heat the milk in a pot on the cooktop.
  • In the cups, add 3/4 tsp of turmeric, 1/4 tsp of cinnamon or nutmeg, 1 tsp of honey.
  • Pour a little hot water over the spice and stir.
  • Then pour the hot milk over.
  • Stir.

Now here’s the thing: doing this was both delightful and humbling. Humbling because I have taken this beautiful food for granted to some extent in the past when I’ve bought it from the spice shop or off the shelf at the supermarket.

Now I understand the process and have learned the power of this wonderful food for our bodies.
