Turmeric Know Your Herbs and Spices

Turmeric is a tropical spice mainly grown in India. It is one of the main ingredients in curry powder, giving it its deep yellow color. It is also often used to color yellow mustard.
Be careful of staining plastics and even your skin when using Turmeric.
Add turmeric to egg salad, rice dishes and steamed vegetables. It is especially good on cauliflower. I like to add it to lentil dishes to bring out the flavor.
