From now on, I am buying dried turmeric only.

Dried turmeric (powder) when mixed with liquid stuff will make your white cooking implements yellow too

Dry the stained garment in the sun and it will go.
Theoretically. Curry stains are stubborn.

The obvious difference being... *drumroll*... turmeric powder is dry to begin with and is handled (or should I say spooned) completely differently to fresh turmeric, which is already moist and needs to be peeled and chopped... all the while staining everything it touches!

Ahh, I do enjoy seeing you putting that wee blob of grey matter of yours into overdrive.

I was just trying to help you and anyone else who might not have known that if they spoon the dry turmeric powder into say cooked vegetables and used white plastic immersion blender, then the plastic would get permanently yellow.

Glad to know that my initial impression of you being a _ _ _ t was correct

Re: Fresh Turmeric in Switzerland

Funny thing, hand sanitizer removed most of the orange coloring from my hands.

It is perfect for cleaning the stubborn stains off the white board, too.

Re: Fresh Turmeric in Switzerland

Seconded! Recently made a carrot and tumeric soup mixed in the blender and of course the plastic turned neon yellow. All I had to do was leave it in the window in strong sunlight and *presto* it was gone within hours.

Good tip, thanks guys! Although in Autumn and Winter in CH this method may be less possible due to lack of sun.

I still likely won't be using fresh turmeric again though unless I really have no choice or wear some disposable kitchen gloves or something.

Sun/heat and plastic are not a healthy combination which is why I switched all my kitchen equipment to glass/metal last year, problem permanently solved.
