Tumeric - Asian's may know something we don't

Locked

It's kind of interesting how one thing leads to another. I've gotten on a relish canning kick lately and
many recipes call for 'turmeric'. I have a lot of spices but that is one I did not have and recently bought
some. After researching on wikipedia, I found some interesting facts about Tumeric...

-Native to tropical south Asia

-Nizamabad (south Indian state of Andhra pradesh) world's largest producer and most important trading center of turmeric in Asia. Nizamabad in history is also known as "Turmeric City".

-one of the key ingredient for many Indian, Persian and Thai dishes

-currently being investigated for possible benefits in Alzheimer's disease, cancer, and more. (turmeric ameliorated the severity of pancreatitis-associated lung injury in mice)

-Turmeric paste is traditionally used by Indian women to keep them free of superfluous hair and as an antimicrobial.
Also said to improve skin and an anti-aging agent. And...bridal beautification ceremonies of India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. Staining oneself with turmeric is believed to improve the skin tone and tan. Also used in tanning agents.

-also be used to deter ants...they don't know why but it works

---------------And all I wanted was turmeric for relish's. :mrgreen:

I think it's very interesting. I will be using lots of turmeric.

No matter where we live, we all have things in common with each other. :P

Here is a tip which is very effective.
If you are ever wounded, take a spoon of powdered turmeric and mix it in a glass of hot milk and drink it before going to bed. It really helps a lot in healing the wound.

Do a Google search for "herbs 2000" and you can find a lot of information about spices and herbs. Disclaimer: This is not my site. No guarantees or anything at all in implied. It is just a good site for information in my opinion.

:?: Teaspoon or tablespoon? One heaping or leveled? Wondering if this could help a friend of mine who got into a cycling accident ( so much asphalt burns on his arms after being thrown off his bike )

Hi
Am not usually a forum writer but have to reply to this topic.
Agree Tumeric is wonderful.
I have a skin disorder called-- hidradenitis suppurativa-- Tumeric has helped me with this
big time. I won't go into the basics of the disease -- google search if you want to know
what it is.
Tumeric made into a paste helps with the swelling and relieves pain very quickly, it has
also helped many times to open up the lesions so they can drain.
I also use it in my cooking and find with regular use I haven't had as many lesions, abscesses
or tracts as I did a year ago.

It sounds almost like a miracle spice! I'm sure glad it is working well for you.
