Turmeric (often referred to as the golden spice) has long been celebrated as a super spice owing to both its medicinal qualities and great flavour.
It can be used fresh from the bulb or in the dried ground form to flavour cooking, and is an essential ingredient in Indian cuisine, though more recently has grown in popularity in western cuisine as well. Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin that is known for its anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic (or anti-cancer properties). Other benefits of turmeric include regulation of cholesterol, a support for depression and diabetes, as well as being supportive for the health of the gastrointestinal tract.
Turmeric has a subtle warm flavour that enriches any dish.
You can use turmeric with just about anything these days. Try adding it to flavour soups, casseroles and curries. Use it in marinades for fish, chicken, lamb or beef. Make a turmeric latte with nut milk, honey and other spices….skies the limit with this spice.
