Our Turmeric is from India. The powder is ground from the plant's rhizome tuberous (which grows under the foliage with a rough yellowish-brown skin while the interior is a yellowish orange color). We carry the higher quality Turmeric "Fingers" which are appendages that are separated from the main rhizome. These are then broken into 1" to 3" lengths." The "fingers" possess a greater curcumin content and more flavor because of their higher volatile oil, which provides a superior quality turmeric for grinding. It works well in combination with other herbs and spices like bay leaves, cilantro, clove, coconut, coriander, cumin, curry leaves, dill, fennel seed, galangal, ginger, lemongrass, mustard seeds, nutmeg, paprika and pepper. It is a key spice in numerous Asian dishes. Goes nicely with vegetables, beans, chicken, eggs, fish, meat, rice and spinach.
It is a complex, rich and woody aroma with citrus, floral and ginger undertones
