Turmeric - Ground
Turmeric has a slightly bitter, warm taste. A close relation to ginger, the turmeric shrub is primarily cultivated in southeast Asia and parts of Africa. It is often used as part of food seasonings for spicy curries and pungent mustards. There has been a notable surge in the use of turmeric recently based on its wellness properties. Indispensable in curry powders and East Indian cooking, turmeric is also used in prepared mustards and pickles, dressings, eggs and rice dishes. Use an airtight container kept away from direct sunlight to maximize the lifespan of turmeric's potency. (.5oz)
