Curcuma: indispensable even during the holidays
Curcuma is that yellow spice, the beneficial effects of which are the word around town. It is best known for its anti-inflammatory and detoxifying effects, as it prevents, among other things, the accumulation of fat around the liver and thus protects it. It sounds like an excellent counterbalance to fatty and sweet holiday foods and goes great in the recipes of many holiday dishes. It is also a natural Easter egg dye.
Turmeric with its yellow colour is a great natural dye for Easter eggs. With a couple of tricks we can even create different shades:
Gold: Mix a cup of water and two tablespoons of vinegar in a pot. Increase the amount of vinegar proportionally to a larger amount of water. Add three tablespoons of turmeric and cook the eggs for half an hour.
Soak eggs in water, vinegar and turmeric for half an hour at room temperature.
Soak eggs in water, vinegar and turmeric for half an hour at room temperature, then another half hour in the water, vinegar and onion peels.
Soak eggs in water, vinegar and turmeric for half an hour at room temperature, then quickly dip them in the red cabbage solution for 5 seconds.
