1/3 pound fresh Turmeric
3" fresh Ginger root
1/2 cup water
3 tbsp Coconut oil
2 tbsp honey or maple syrup (optional)
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Black Pepper
pinch of Salt
Take fresh turmeric & ginger, use a spoon to peel the skin then chop into 1″ pieces. Add to a blender with other ingredients and blend until smooth, then add to a small pot.
With all ingredients in a pot, heat over medium low, stirring frequently. We don’t want this to boil, just simmer gently.
Stir often and don’t let burn or boil!
Simmer for 7-10 minutes, until combined and has slightly thickened to a paste. Turmeric paste will thicken substantially as it cools and is placed in the fridge.
Let cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.
