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 antioxidant compounds called curcuminoids which may help fight inflammation, reduce the risk of heart disease, delay the signs of aging. It is also the ingredient which gives curry powder its yellow color.
