Turmeric, Ground

Expand Product Info ▼

Savory Spice Shop is one of the few spice vendors that sell turmeric that has been ground onsite in small batches. Turmeric root is a member of the ginger family and is used for its flavor as well as its color. For thousands of years natives of India used turmeric as a dying agent which produces an exquisite golden orange color.

In Indonesia, the natives would use turmeric to dye their bodies as an important part of the wedding ritual.

Turmeric can replace the golden color provided by saffron in many dishes, but won't replace the exquisite flavor. Turmeric’s flavor is bitter, astringent and pungent. Ground turmeric is an important ingredient to ras el hanout and many curry powder and pastes. Adds a subtle flavor and color to vegetables, bean and rice dishes.
