What Is Turmeric?

Turmeric is a golden yellow spice from the root of an herb plant native to India and S.E Asia. This spice is a central ingredient in many curries, providing a vibrant pop of colour.

Turmeric has an earthy and bitter flavour profile with a hint of peppery spice. However turmeric is more versatile than you think and can be added sparingly to a dish, or more generously for a hit of flavour and health benefit!
