    Homemade Golden Turmeric Paste (For Humans And Dogs)

    The Ayurveda Experience September 20, 2017

    Making this homemade Golden Turmeric Paste, for me, is a beautiful ritual, allowing me to slow down and enjoy the colors and textures of my own homemade medicine. It is now known that making a paste of turmeric makes the curcumin more bioavailable, so that the body’s ability to absorb and assimilate the curcumin is improved. The key here is the fat you choose and the black pepper.

    Making your own homemade turmeric paste is so easy and convenient. Throw your excuses away and integrate this recipes into your daily lifestyle.

    Homemade Golden Turmeric Paste (For Humans And Dogs)

    1 c purified water
    1/2 c organic turmeric powder
    1/2 c extra virgin olive oil
    1 tsp ground black pepper (or 1/2 tsp if you prefer less heat)

    Combine the turmeric and water in a pan on low to medium-low heat until a thick paste forms. Add black pepper and oil. Stir well. You may need to adjust the consistency by adding water or additional turmeric. Let it cool then store in a glass jar. Stores up to one month.

    Turmeric Paste Uses

    For good health on a daily basis, make this recipe in small batches.

    You may take 1/2 tsp several times a day as opposed to one large dose. Check with your health care provider before taking on any new supplements, and listen to your body.

    You can add turmeric paste to smoothies, warm milk, juices, nut butters, stir fried dishes, stews, dressings and more. Add it to warm water and drink it like a tea.

    For dogs, mix 1/2 tsp paste with their food. My 14 year old Aussie loves it! You can also dip their treat in it and consider that a serving or two.

    Turmeric Paste Benefits

    Turmeric root which is freshly picked from the ground is deliciously fragrant. We grow it in our garden in Austin, TX as well as Ojai, CA. It has done well in both places. You’ll know the rhizomes are ready when the leaves start turning yellow and the edges start crinkling brown.

    This traditional south Asian plant is prized for its anti-inflammatory properties. It is a workhorse of an herb, also called a spice. It helps prevent cancer, halts cancer cells from spreading, protects against liver damage and radiation damage. It’s used as a pain killer, helps to lower cholesterol and boosts brain health.
