I use Golden Paste as a base for my Turmeric Ginger Tea. It's also great to add to soups.
1/2 cup organic turmeric powder
1 cup water
1.5 t fine grind black pepper
5 T virgin coconut oil
In a stainless steel pot, cook the turmeric and black pepper in the water over medium heat until it forms a thick paste. Stir with a metal spoon and cook for about 4 - 5 minutes. Be careful not to splatter!
Remove from heat and stir in the virgin coconut oil. Use a whisk to fully mix in the coconut oil.
Transfer the Golden Paste into a glass jar (NOT plastic) with a lid, and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
Turmeric will stain so be careful.
