Turmeric (ground) 1.2 oz
This gorgeously golden orange root is a member of the ginger family. When ground, turmeric has a musky wood spice character with a slightly pungent, bitter finish. Paired with coconut milk in curries, soups, and sauces it will greet your palate with a smooth creamy caress. After 2000 years’ use as medicine in South Asia, turmeric is enjoying a resurgence for homeopathic use treating a variety of medical ailments. This has fed demand for turmeric in foods like those mentioned above and beverages such as golden turmeric milk, turmeric tea, and turmeric lattes.
Two thousand years ago turmeric was part of the ancient Ayurveda system of natural medicine in India which means “science of life”. Turmeric root and curry powders were first introduced into the U.S. in the 18th century by British and Dutch traders. The first time turmeric was mentioned in a U.S. cookbook as an ingredient for curry sauce and pickling spice was in 1747. But you don’t have to travel back in time to taste this beautiful and healthy spice. If you click the “buy” button we will deliver it directly to your door!
