Have you tried Turmeric Root C/S? Tell us what you think!
I love adding turmeric to my homemade chai, and often prefer to use the fresh root over powder to keep all the powdered bits out. Fresh root isn’t always easy to find, and this cut turmeric is the perfect solution. I need to use more cut dried root than powder. I sometimes just infuse the turmeric c/s in cold milk in my fridge, to make a turmeric milk cold brew, easy to add to chai or drink alone.
Cut turmeric is very hard to find, and even harder to find organic cut turmeric. Really happy with this product!
