Getting to know turmeric

Good Life turmeric IS harvested fresh and can be delivered right away or frozen later in the year. We start harvesting mid October.  As a tropical plants grown in the much shorter season of the Northeast, both are perishable products and are different than the cured turmeric we generally find in the store.  Young, fresh rhizomes lend flavor and freshness to dishes that surpass cured and freighted  as well as opening up more opportunities for culinary experimentation.  Consider trying turmeric raw- grated into greens and root salads- cooked into vegetable dishes or in tea, ginger beer, glazes, sauces etc. Turmeric is good for maintaining daily health and can be stored in the freezer for use all year long.

 

Storage and perishability considerations

  • Young turmeric can be stored in the refrigerator for 10-14 days in a sealed container.

  • Any part of the rhizome not used within 14 days should be frozen in a sealed plastic bag, and can be used for months afterwards. GLF will deliver ginger and turmeric well washed, but please double check and remove all dirt before freezing.

  • Use pre-frozen turmeric still frozen and return unused portions to the freezer. Repeated thawing and freezing will damage the storability of the root.
