Turmeric root is a member of the ginger family and is used for its flavor as well as its color. For thousands of years, natives of India used turmeric as a dying agent that produces an exquisite golden orange color.
Turmeric can replace the golden color provided by saffron in many dishes, but won't replace the exquisite flavor. Turmeric’s flavor is bitter, astringent and pungent. Ground turmeric is an important ingredient to Ras el Hanout and many curry powders and pastes. Adds a subtle flavor and color to vegetables, bean and rice dishes.
