HOW TO USE TURMERIC

Turmeric is a bright yellow spice created from the rhizomes of the herbacious perennial Curcuma longa. It has an aromatic, slightly bitter taste and is very popular in curries, both to add colour and flavour. Turmeric originated in India and is now cultivated in many tropical countries, where is often used as a more affordable substitute for saffron.

We stock both organic and non-organic turmeric. Here are some of our favourite ways to use this colourful spice!
