I found these grubs rooting around in the compost pile.
These are turmeric roots. Turmeric works wonder for an upset stomach, and turmeric is health-promoting in general. OTC concoctions are so expensive and have negative side effects. I make this in batches and have a couple wafers whenever my stomach acts up.
My candied turmeric root recipe: Rinse and slice the turmeric roots wafer-thin. Put the wafers in a frying pan and add water to just cover. Add an abundance of erythritol and stir. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until water is mostly evaporated. Turn heat to lowest setting and stir frequently until almost dry. Turn off heat and leave pan on burner until cool. Scrape candy off bottom of pan and store in an air-tight container.
