With three ingredients you can create this nutritional boost! Learn how to make fermented turmeric!
If you are hesitant to use sugar, consider using salt and a starter. Place several coarsely chopped turmeric roots, in a quart-size glass jar. Add two teaspoons sea salt and 1/4 cup starter. Starter suggestions include:
- Ginger Bug
- Beet Kvass
- Sauerkraut Juice
Cover with a cloth and rubber band. Place on a shelf for two days. Transfer jar to the refrigerator.
For added potency consume fermented turmeric with black pepper. Piperine, a key chemical in black pepper, enhances bioavailability of turmeric.
I have also successfully used honey as the sweetener. I find the honey fermentation more appealing.
