Turmeric has a peppery, warm and bitter flavour and a mild fragrance slightly reminiscent of orange and ginger, and while it is the best to know as one of the ingredients used to make curry. Add this spice to anything, besides sweets, for a new flavour and a ton of health benefits.
You can use turmeric to add some zest to cooked vegetables, eggs, and meat dishes. You can also add it to boiling water you are using to make pasta, rice, soups, and more. Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma Longa plant and has a tough brown skin and a deep orange flesh.
Turmeric has long been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in both the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine. Turmeric was traditionally called Indian saffron because of its deep yellow-orange colour and has been used throughout history as a condiment, healing remedy and textile dye.
