Turmeric has been used to add spice to food for centuries, and has also been used as a dye thanks to it's vibrant yellow colour, but how about using it to help health conditions?

You may have heard about the Golden Paste Company on Stray FM's Health and Wellbeing Show recently (if not, click here), but the Food and Drink Show has now got rather excited about the prospect of cooking up your own at home!

Golden Paste Company Set Up

Recipe to Make Your Own Golden Paste:

  1. Place 250ml water and 60g turmeric in a pan, stirring over a gentle heat until you have a thick paste. This should take about 7 - 10 minutes and you may need to add a little extra water or turmeric as you go along as each batch of the spice will react slightly differently to the next.
  2. Remove from the heat, then add 2 teaspoons of freshly ground black pepper and 70ml oil. You can also add 1 tablespoon of Ceylon cinnamon in required. Stir well and leave to cool.
  3. Keep refrigerated and use within 2 weeks. Feel free to freeze if you have too much!

And if that's not enough, we made a little video to help you along the way as well.

Stray FM's Beth Parsons went along to chat to Janine from the Golden Paste Company based in Killinghall to find out more. You can listen to this below.
