ginger and turmeric are said to possess similar ayurvedic properties but ginger tea is a heck of a lot easier to stomach than turmeric tea
I've never seen them except in small pieces. They look like orange colored ginger rhizomes. I had no idea they were in the same family - "Zingiberaceae".
“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Are these crosnes? Bigger than I've seen before with bright orange flesh like a sweet potato.Ding! We have a winner.
They look like turmeric.
At least, that's what the turmeric root I've bought looked like.
Yeah, that was my first guess. (They sell them at the Thai market Munich.)
