Turmeric - Spices and Herbs


A cousin of ginger root, turmeric has a rich, woody aroma and warm, pungent flavor.

We source our Spice Islands® turmeric from India. The rhizomes, or whole turmeric, produce a beautiful yellow color and mild, musty flavor when ground.

Turmeric is a classic addition to chutneys, pilafs and lentil dishes. Use it to add an Eastern flair to curries or chicken.

Turmeric is one of the most inexpensive spices in the world. It’s not usual to see it being used to color rice for an Indonesian wedding (in place of saffron) or to dye cow skins.
