It can be difficult to imagine how you can consume turmeric, the wonder spice, on a daily basis. Its rich flavor, associated with Indian curries and foods, can be overpowering unless you know how to use it properly.
Considered holy and auspicious in India for millennia, turmeric is not only a sacred spice it also has proven health benefits.
Part of the ginger family, turmeric is used in Indian cooking to color and flavor the food, but it has also been used in traditional Indian and Chinese medicine for centuries.
