Golden Milk

Postby chrissmith94 » Tue Feb 11, 2020 3:45 pm

Hello,

I found a nice recipe called “golden milk” which is a turmeric latte. It doesn’t need many ingredients – all it takes is turmeric, cinnamon, black pepper, and ginger. I personally love to pour some buttermilk in it, too. The only mistake I made was that I didn’t wear gloves when cutting the turmeric. It took days until my fingers weren’t yellow anymore. Now that I know that, I want to use disposable gloves the next time I prepare a turmeric latte. I did some research and I found these gloves:

I think they are at a reasonable price for disposable gloves that are approved for contact with food. What do you think? Do you also use gloves like this?

I am open for any other hacks on how to cut turmeric but also for other recipes with turmeric.

Many thanks,
Chris

The blue is to find the bits if you have any fail with them, but other gloves are OK as well just not if selling for public consumption. I'm not sure about a turmeric latte but do use it quite a bit in savoury dishes that are supposed to have it as an ingredient and some never ever intended to meet it. I just use powdered as root is not available in any of the supermarkets in my area.

I haven't tried turmeric from root, nor do I use it much but certainly I don't want yellow fingers for days.

A turmeric latte sounds strangely delicious.

Welcome erapx!

Turmeric is quite a benign spice in that it does not scream at you but adds a subtle layer of flavour & of course colour. I would definitely try it as up there as a favoured spice in my book.

Sounds very unusually, but at the same time, I'm interested. Anyway, I've never bought turmeric as a root.

I find tumeric may not scream in flavour it does in colour.
I don't use it anything like as much as I do paprika.

I have a freebie packet of turmeric tablets supplied a vitwmin company. Tried a few but they were horribly hard to swallow and make your pee go bright yellow. Do they have any genuine health benefits? The jury seems to be out on this question.

I've given up on the 'health benefits' of most things as seem just a passing fad! (Really fast passing in current times)! We know the hard fact stuff like fat & the like being bad, but the what is good is over in a flash without much proper research but some "star" telling the public it is! I use a couple of herbal tablets following lots of research & one even regularly supplied by prescription in Europe.

Stephen I'm with you on paprika, like the smokey tones, like the Moroccan mixes, 5 spice is interesting but limited in uses! As for herbs - big time user!
