Very easily confused with ginger, as it is in the same family. I use it (dried and ground in a powder) in a paste with (virgin) coconut oil and scramble eggs in it. I've read where it needs the heat to open it up.... Add to your hearts desire, other ingredients (onion, garlic, potatoes, etc...) A wonderful elixir in its' own right. One of those....magic foods/supplement/herbs, etc....may long you live! pg

Also taken with black pepper (Piperine) increases the absorption rate.

If anyone is interested,  my wife grows organic Turmeric.

She sun dries it, powders it & sells it by the kg or in 1000mg capsules.

Pm me if you want some.

Many different kinds of what Thais call Khamin. The one in the pic is Khamin Oi, mostly used in Curry (Kaeng). Very often you find also Khamin Chan and Khamin Khaw in the markets to name only some.
