Savory Spice Shop is one of the few spice vendors that sell turmeric that has been ground fresh 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.

Tumeric is native to South Asia.
"I wanted to Thank You for the care that went into my last order. Everything was bagged and wrapped PERFECTLY. It really means a lot when I get a note thanking me for the business, and Nate- who wrote the note and I presume filled the order- did an OUTSTANDING job! I found you over 3 years ago while looking for specific spices for a Vodka recipe. I was so tired running from store to store looking for hard to find spices like Ras el Hanout, Fenugreek seeds, Berbere seasoning, or pomegranate molasses! Your fresh and potent spices, blends and waters make me look like a 'rock star chef' to my family- they THINK I know what I am doing! Thank you again for the choices you give to us and for a fabulous product!"
