Product Description

  • Fresh turmeric root (pronounced TER-muh-rihk), or yellow ginger, is a staple of Southeast Asian and Indian cuisines. It’s an intensely orange-colored version of its cousin ginger, but without the spicy flavor. Instead, turmeric is slightly peppery and earthy.
  • Did you know that turmeric’s bright orange-yellow color is what makes curry and mustard powders yellow?
  • Use caution when handling turmeric root: it will stain your fingers, clothing, and kitchen surfaces! Here are some turmeric stain removal tips.
  • Peel and grate or finely chop, then add to rice, curries, juices, and smoothies. Steep slices in hot water for tea or in dairy or plant-based milk to make “Golden Milk.”
  • Turmeric contains curcumin, which is being studied for its natural anti-inflammatory and cancer-fighting properties.
  • Store refrigerated, wrapped, or in a cool, dry place. (If not refrigerated, roots will gradually become dehydrated.) Can also be frozen.
