- 1/2 cup (125 mls/60gms) turmeric powder
- 1 cup water (250 mls) PLUS 1 cup water in reserve, if needed
- 1/3 cup (70 mls) Raw/Cold Pressed/Unrefined Coconut/Flaxseed-Linseed Oil, Virgin/Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2-3 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
Omit pepper if you cant take it. The absorption of turmeric is improved by cooking the paste with oil, its more effective with pepper.
Place turmeric and water in pan, stirring over gentle heat (do not burn) until you have a thick paste. This should take about 7-10 minutes and you may need to add additional water along the way.
Add the freshly ground pepper and oil at the end of cooking.
Stir well with a whisk to mix the oil and allow to cool.
The Golden Paste will keep for 2 weeks, refrigerated
You can freeze if you have too much to use within the 2 weeks.
Suitable for humans or your pets.
