The spoon on the left has the purchased spice and the one on the right is the one I made. I have some of the rhizomes in pots inside to see if I can get an early start on next year's crop but have saved the biggest ones to plant outside in the spring.

What type of turmeric did you grow? I was looking for rhizomes a little while ago and found so many types, but didn't know which version to grow that would be best.

I found at least 3 types all sold from a grower in Hawaii.
