This beautifully golden-orange spice may not be top five in your spice rack, but its zesty citrus taste will make you think again. Versatile and flavor-full, it’s the perfect flavor for meats, veggies, curry and rice dishes. Plus, the earthy spice also doubles as an all-natural, anti-inflammatory compound.
This vibrant spice can be traced back to Asia where locals used the root as both a spice and a dye. Today, the golden-orange spice is widely used in Indian and Indonesian cuisine for both essential earthy flavor and vivid color.
Over the last few years, scientific evidence has been building around the potential health benefits of turmeric. Research suggests its main active ingredient, curcumin, contains anti-inflammatory properties. Plus, it’s said to deliver a feel-good boost any time of day.
Call it the "spice of all trades" because turmeric adds a delightful taste to any dish it’s in. Craving cozy veggie stews, savory chicken meals or tasty beef recipes? How about crisp, delicious dill pickle spears, pickled cauliflower, or tangy corn and bell pepper relish? All you need is a pinch of turmeric for big, bold flavor.
