Turmeric's Health Benefits and Vibrant Color

Turmeric has a rustic, earthy, and slightly bitter flavor, while its color is a fiery golden orange that adds warmth and depth to your dish.  Besides having vibrant color and engaging taste, turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and powerful antioxidant.  It combats the effect of free radicals as well as Alzheimer's disease.  Adding a little turmeric to your cooking can be a win-win situation for both your brain and your taste buds.

  1. Beautiful photo! Tumeric is supposed to be an upcoming, trendy ingredient. Have you seen it fresh? I heard fresh turmeric is similar to ginger.

  2. Hi Sanura,
    i have seen fresh turmeric at Patel Brothers in Jackson Heights ---i see your in Brooklyn --- Patels has a lot of specialty items at very great prices. Worth the trip now and then for me up here in Washington Heights.
