What is Turmeric?

Turmeric is an edible root that grows underground horizontally and is known for its bright yellow colour. It holds a bit of mystical element, yet is prized for its healing powers. The fresh root has a pleasantly mild, delicate yet distinct flavor, described as earthy and bitter with a slight hint of sweetness and citrus; it is surprisingly juicy and crisp to the bite. It’s related to ginger, looking and tasting vaguely similar. The white variety has a lighter flesh colour yet holds a stronger flavour.
