Golden Turmeric Paste

Instructions

  • Use a spoon to peel the skin of turmeric and ginger roots 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. 

  • Simmer for 5-10  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.
