Turmeric has a pungent, musky flavor and aroma. Due to its bright yellow color, it is sometimes used instead of saffron for its coloring. This spice is an important part of curry powders and is also used in mustards, relish, and other vegetable dishes.
Turmeric is an essential ingredient in curry mixes, chutney, and mustard pickles. It also goes well with chicken, duck, turkey, vegetables, rice, and salad dressing.
Turmeric is believed to have many health benefits as well. It is considered by many to be a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, useful in disinfecting cuts and burns. It is also considered to be a natural anti-inflammatory that works as well as many anti-inflammatory drugs. It has long been used in Chinese medicine as a treatment for depression.
Make sure to store your turmeric in a cool, dark, dry place for best freshness.
