Turmeric paste

    5 min

    Turmeric and honey are mixed with coconut oil and black pepper creating a tasty and colourful paste. Add a tablespoon or two to cooked soups or stews. Add 1 tablespoon or more to a cup of hot water or milk for a soothing drink. Add lime, ginger and cinnamon for a flavourful break from the usual tea. Always allow the paste to heat for at least 5 minutes before adding it to dishes or drinks.

    This is the first time I'm writing a review but I just couldn't help myself. This is literally what I put on my face as a moisturizing anti-inflammatory mask. (minus the pepper) I always make a tea with the leftovers. Use organic honey just rub the mixture on your face. Let it sit for 15 mins (enjoy the tea while waiting) then wash off with a warm face cloth. It's a great for clearing your skin from inside out.  -  03 Aug 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
