On a freezing January day when the temperatures are below freezing I suddenly had the urge to go shopping for something fresh, spicy and full of vitamins. So I drove to my favourite Asian supermarket in Southall and did some shopping for a selection of ingredients to brighten up an otherwise dull weekend indoors. Don't these Scotch bonnet chillis
look amazing? Hot enough to open up your sinuses if they happen to be blocked!
And a fellow blogger was asking me recently where I obtained my fresh Turmeric root in order to grow some in my greenhouse. Well here you are. There are actually two different types of Turmeric
The white turmeric
on the left, and the more familiar yellow turmeric
on the right. Click on the photo to enlarge the picture and you can see clearly that it is related to ginger. I have only just begun to read and learn about the claimed health benefits of turmeric.
