What is Turmeric?Turmeric is a spice, extracted from the 'Curcuma longa' plant. Turmeric itself is a solid component of curry, and adds to its flavour and yellow colour. Turmeric has a slightly bitter and peppery taste, and is a widely used herb in Eastern cuisine. Aside from being used (as in this recipe) in curries and as a marinade, turmeric can also be used for example in sauces, salad dressings, salsas or as a drink. Turmeric tea, for example, is a healthy tea thats easy to make and also has a wonderfully rich flavour. And don't forget Turmeric for your barbecues. Your barbecues will become more colourful, tastier and healthier.
