What's Turmeric?

Plays: 3138

Did you know that turmeric gives yellow chutneys and curries their vivid color? In this video, you’ll learn all about turmeric, a relative of ginger root that’s commonly used in Asian and Middle Eastern recipes. Turmeric is a good source of antioxidants and an inexpensive substitute for saffron, lending a similar vibrant color to dishes. Use it sparingly though! For gingery flavor and bright color, add turmeric to rice dishes, soups, egg salads, devilled eggs, chutneys, and curries. Watch the video, then see our complete collection of recipes with turmeric.

My sister just came back from living in Dubai for a year and brought me a pack of spices, one of which was tumeric. I have heard of tumeric but didn't know how best to use it. Thank you so much for this informative video.
