Ancient peoples have known for a long time the myriad uses of this very special herb, and here in the West, turmeric is finally being recognized as the healthy heavy-hitter it is. Sure - it's vibrant color will make your meals look beautiful and it's delicate flavors of ginger and orange will punch up your recipes, but what's even more impressive than it's culinary utility is it's bonus features. Here's just a few - we encourage you to read up on this amazing plant and, if you're not already, to start working into your cooking for yourself and your family:
