Description: Turmeric is widely used in Indian curries for its wonderful earthy flavour. It can easily adapt to a wide variety of sweet and savoury recipes from Cinnamon and Turmeric lattes to coconut turmeric curries - it provides an unmistakable colour and flavour to any dish.  Turmeric is an herbaceous perennial herb native to India and Southern Asia that grows to a height of 90-180cm.  It is grown primarily for its roots that are used for cooking, for medicine and as a dye.  The leaves have long stalks (petioles).  The roots are fleshy, oblong, pale brown on the outside and yellowy-orange on the inside, the roots are 5–10 cm in length and have a fragrant aroma and a bitter, sharp taste.


Add this spice to curries, soups, stews, sauces and marinades and any dish you wish to colour yellow such as rice.  Turmeric has been used as a substitute for saffron and is one of the traditional ingredients used to give piccalilli its yellow colouring.
