Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory spice and one of the key ingredients in many Asian dishes, giving off a mustard-like, earthy smell and slightly bitter flavor to foods. It is used mostly in savory dishes, but also is used in some sweet dishes. Most turmeric is used in the form of rhizome powder to give off a golden yellow color. It is used in many products such as baked products, dairy products, canned drinks, orange juice, ice cream, yogurt, yellow cakes, biscuits, cereals, sauces and gelatin. It is a principal ingredient in curry powders. Although typically used in its dried, powdered form, turmeric is also used fresh, like ginger.
Almost every spice that is used in cooking provides some health benefits but turmeric, an anti-inflammatory spice, tops the list. We recognize the healing potential of this magical plant, and have used it in many of our recipes. Try this delicious honey mustard dressing and reap the benefits of turmeric!
