Turmeric belongs to the Zingiberaceae family and comes from the Maharashtra state in India.
It is used in many of the same dishes as Ginger and these sun-dried roots complement each other extremely well. They are said to have remarkable health benefits - possibly even more so together with grated Pepper.
For some extra natural colouring and zing in your cooking, grate the dried roots into a classic curry, a delicious Caribbean sweet potato soup or your breakfast chia seed pudding. Or why not grate and stir into a fresh cocktail or your favourite smoothie? Works great on top of your morning latte, tea or super-healthy detox shot, too.
