Known for its bright yellow color as well as its myriad health benefits, turmeric has a warm, peppery flavor that is popular for use in Asian and Indian cuisine, particularly curries.
Fresh ground from the finest turmeric root, this turmeric has a bold color and earthy aroma that works well in many dishes. This aromatic spice imparts a slightly bitter, mustard-like flavor in traditional Asian and Indian cuisine but can also be used to flavor vegetables, stews, casseroles, and even scrambled eggs. A little of this pungent spice goes a long way, so use it sparingly and consider pairing it with complementary spices like chili powder and cumin. Turmeric also contains curcuminoids which gives curry powder its yellow color.
