    Hey letsgo, can you let me know who the eBay store is where you get your mason jars? I've looked at bigw and they never seem to have in stock the smaller jars.

    Dried about 2/3 of the tumeric into this

    Just a heads up... if you are going to pick up from the Krmpsey store... to order online you have to enter their address into their system to be given the option to pickup from the factory or it will try and charge you freight costs.

    Yes good advice to tell people. Their system is a little weird.

    Great job on the turmeric

    Excellent powdered turmeric! Glad you used a jar to store it in because I made the mistake of storing our own dried powdered turmeric in a plastic glad bag last season and it reacted slightly with the bag making the outside of plastic go tacky... weird I know but now we store it in the glass too.
