TURMERIC: Links to Information and Recipes

At Qualla Berry Farm, 2013 was our first season growing Organic Turmeric in our hoophouse. We have been a learning a lot about how to use this amazing rhizome as food and medicine. Below is a sampling of website links for information about turmeric.

Our fresh Turmeric will be available during December 2013. To place an order, contact us by email at jkqualla@frontier.com or by phone at 828-389-3551. More information and photos can be found on our website, www.quallaberryfarm.com . Our blog accepts comments so you can share your experience with using turmeric with others. Use your imagination! Karen’s Mom has been eating a bit of fresh turmeric every day and has noticed an improvement in the arthritis in her thumbs. Another friend had some digestive upset. We are all unique. Pay attention and experiment gently!

(Black pepper is an important friend of turmeric to activate health benefits)
