Golden Root Paste + Golden Latte #Sponsored

This weekend I stopped in at The Quail & Olive* and Anni shared these two spices from Diaspora Co. with me. I always love learning about new companies, especially one that has such interesting roots. Diaspora Co. was founded just a couple of years ago with a mission to forge an equitable spice trade that decolonizes spices back into a seasonal crop and restructures a broken system into an fair and sustainable exchange.

From the pantry section of The Quail & Olive, I picked up the Diaspora Co. Pragati Turmeric and Aranya Pepper. Both are single origin with the former coming from Vijayawada, a city in the southeast Indian state of Andhra Pradesh; the latter comes from Thirunelly, a village in the southern Indian state of Kerala.


I have long been a fan of golden milk, a traditional Ayurvedic recipe made with turmeric mixed with different spices. Some versions include black pepper, others cardamom. Some are sweetened with honey, others with dates. But I've always bought a mixture...and they're pricey. So, the two items from The Quail & Olive inspired me to make my own version. With just a few ingredients, you can have your own golden root paste...and make your own golden lattes.

Ingredients

Golden Root Paste makes approximately 1 cup paste
  • 1/3 cup turmeric powder
  • 5 Tablespoons organic coconut oil
  • 1" knob fresh ginger, peeled and freshly grated
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 to 2 cinnamon sticks (organic Ceylon cinnamon sticks from RawSpiceBar)**


Golden Latte makes one cup
Procedure

Golden Root Paste
Place all of the ingredients in a medium saucepan. Heat until the coconut oil is melted. Whisk until smooth. Remove from heat and take out the cinnamon sticks. Transfer to a glass jar with a lid and store in the refrigerator. 

Note: the paste should be stored in the refrigerator and used within two weeks.


Golden Latte
Gently warm milk in a saucepan. Whisk in turmeric paste and honey until well-combined. Pour into a mug and garnish with a cinnamon stick. Serve immediately.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
