High tunnels have changed the cycles of Maine’s local food systems, extending our live food harvests to year-round bounty, writes Roberta Bailey in her article "Turmeric for Flavor and Health" in the winter issue of The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener. Along with cucumbers, greens, sweet potatoes and tomatoes come the fresh roots of ginger and turmeric. These fresh spices bring delicious new flavor profiles to our fall and winter meals. Find Roberta’s recipes for Sweet Potato Soup, Hot Turmeric Latte, Roasted Carrots with Turmeric, and more.
