An idea of how to use turmeric before it gets shrunken and old, from Suzanne:
Freeze a bunch, whole and unpeeled. Then when you want to use a bit, pull it out and grate it totally frozen with a very sharp grater, and use it however. That works and is super-easy. I’m next thinking of brewing a really strong concentrate (maybe adding ginger as well) and freezing it in ice cube trays to have small amounts easily accessible. Once the cubes are frozen I would transfer them to zip locks.
White Tea Camellia Sinensis Asamica
The seasonal harvest of beautiful White Tea is now available! The Camellia Sinensis crop is grown on the farm in concentric circles and is hand-picked on sunny days with no heat used in processing. White Tea is closest to the raw form of the plant and has the unique benefit of having the highest available anti-oxidants and the lowest caffeine content of any tea. Enjoy the rich floral flavor of this tea, hot or cold!
Camellia sinensis is the Latin name of the tea plant we love to drink. Black, green and white tea all come from the same plant but indicate either the way the plant is harvested or processed.
White tea is made from the bud and first two leaves gathered from the new shoots of the tea bush.
The dark chocolate-brown leaves remain attached to the silvery buds and stems.
When infused, this tea yields a pale gold liquor with the sweet, flowery aroma of cut hay and lemon and the taste and soft undertones of sun-warmed wood.
White tea is low in caffeine and high in antioxidants as well as smooth and delicious any time of day.
Brewing tips: Brew 0.09-0.10 oz ( a nice sized handful) in water at about 167 degrees F or 75 degrees C. Should not be full boil but just before. Can brew for up to 5 minutes. You can re-use the leaves several times with a slightly different taste each time.
Known in the Hawaiian language as olena, the turmeric/olena root is harvested in January-February each year. The root is then dried and ground at a low heat in small batches to increase curcumin levels and ensure you're receiving a fresh, quality product.
This beautiful golden powder is a powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial, known for its immune-boosting qualities as well as its benefits for digestion and liver function. It can be added to any fresh or cooked dish to enhance its flavor and beauty. Keep it handy in your kitchen and sprinkle on eggs, add to rice, dressings, smoothies - your imagination is the only limit!
