Crosnes

Recommended Posts

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".

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

"Rhizome" is such a cool word.

Are these crosnes? Bigger than I've seen before with bright orange flesh like a sweet potato.

 

(emphasis added to note clue that people missed)

 

They look like turmeric.

Ding! We have a winner.

 

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.)
