Fresh Turmeric Juice
Fresh turmeric root fights inflammation and contains antioxidants. The best way to enjoy fresh turmeric is to juice it. Once juiced and strained, it can be stored in a tightly closed container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Once juiced and strained, it can be used in Grace’s Turmeric Rice and Turkey in Turmeric Sauce.
