Turmeric has a peppery aroma and flavor. It is sometimes used as a substitute for Saffron. Turmeric is found in Indian cuisines, especially curries, and North African cuisine to spice lamb dishes.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is the root of a plant which is in the same family as Ginger. The flesh is a bright orange and dries to a deep yellow-orange color.
This flowering perennial has been cultivated for over 2000 years in India, China and the Middle East. Turmeric was worshipped in ancient times as one of the sun spices because of its yellow color.
