January and February is the season for fresh turmeric. Many a times you can see them in the market, which is being bought for making turmeric powder. We can store it in the refrigerator and use it whenever turmeric is required in the cooking (like ginger). Fresh turmeric pickle is made in gujarathi recipes. This year I decided to make a few recipes out of this fresh turmeric and first I tried fresh turmeric pickle. That is came out well. Next I tried Fresh turmeric ginger pickle. This also came out very well. My son and hubby liked it so much. Soon I willcome out with more fresh turmeric recipes. As you all know it is needless to say about the goodness of turmeric.
