My recipe plainly states: Place 1/4 cup of the turmeric mixture (1/2% turmeric, 1/4% ground black pepper, 1/4% calendula flowers) in a pan along with 1/2 cup of water. The black pepper will intensify the strength of the turmeric 1000% and the calendula has many benefits that will only increase the power of the mixture. Read: Marigolds are More than Just Flowers
You are the only one who has had problems Raynbo. It may be you mixed the recipe wrong.
I use my turmeric mixture in tons of my recipes and no one and I mean no one ever complained. It may be best for you to buy my mix already made so there would be no errors.
