Homemade Turmeric Powder
Every year during summer, we start the process of making a huge batch of turmeric powder for that year’s use in cooking. Each and every step from choosing the turmeric to grinding the turmeric powder is important.
Break turmeric into small pieces so that it will dry completely.
Place the pieces on a plate and cover with mesh to keep dust from settling on it.
Sun dry until the turmeric is crisp.
Once dry, grind the turmeric in a food mill.
Strain the powder, putting larger pieces back in the mill.
Once the powder has cooled, store it in a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
