Our turmeric is grown organically on a small farm in southern India by an expert farmer specializing in sustainable agricultural techniques. Its high curcumin content (4%) makes it ideal for both culinary and nutritional uses. Add it to sauces, stews, salad dressing and baked goods for bright color, depth of flavor and wellness.
A word to the wise: this spice is often used as a natural dye - it's known to leave a mark. So you have a decision to make: either use gloves (and caution) when handling or proudly display your yellow hands to show that you've just cooked with very fresh turmeric.
Our turmeric is grown organically in Karnataka, India, where it is hand-harvested, cleaned, sun-dried and ground fresh. It's irrigated with using a special water conservation method, and the field is intercropped with sugarcane. It has a sweet, floral flavor without the metallic bitterness found in lower quality turmeric, and is perfect for both sweet and savory applications, in curries and other dishes as well as in turmeric teas and lattes.
We call it ayurvedic turmeric because our partner farmer's father was an Ayurvedic doctor and he's incorporated the principles of Ayurveda into his cultivation techniques and post-harvest processing of the turmeric, including intercropping with sugar cane and a hot water wash to protect the curcumin content. (Note: Turmeric is sometimes spelled/pronounced "tumeric")
