I hope you are ready, because everything is just about to turn yellow in your kitchen. Learning how to grow turmeric was lots of fun, I try use it as often as I possibly can in my cooking. I think the easiest way to use it is in powder form, therefore learn how to make your own turmeric powder.

If you did not already know, this plant is a member of the ginger family. And just like ginger it poses many health benefits such as boosting your immune system, anti inflammatory properties, liver health, joint health and also provides much needed antioxidants. The process itself is pretty straight forward, just a little messy.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • fresh turmeric rhizomes
  • food dehydrator
  • oven
  • water
  • stock pot
  • strainer
  • paper towel
  • knife
  • cutting board
  • cookie sheet
  • aluminum foil
  • food processor
  • airtight glass jar

I love to dry my turmeric using our solar dehydrator, but that takes a few days. So for those of us who are impatient, you would be pleased to know that you can use your oven or food dehydrator. First you need to boil your turmeric in water for at least 40 minutes. Strain any excess water before leaving out to dry on some paper towel.

After about an hour, you can slice them into small slices to help speed up the drying process. Place a sheet of aluminum foil on your baking sheet, and spread your slices evenly on top. Process in your oven at 200 degrees F for up to two hours. Remove from oven, and process in your food processor.

Use your strainer to separate the chunks from the powder. Process any chunks that are left on your strainer in your food processor again, you only want the super fine powder. Collect this and store it in an air tight mason jar, for up to 2 years. Mine never lasts that long, that’s how often I use this spice.
