Fresh turmeric has vibrant orange flesh with an earthy, peppery, slightly citrusy flavour. It’s brighter and livelier than the ground stuff, and packed with goodness.

Use it to make curries, soups, pickles, juices, and all sorts of other dishes sing. Be careful while preparing – the juice can stain.

Quick Overview

Fresh turmeric has vibrant orange flesh with an earthy, peppery, slightly citrusy flavour. It’s brighter and livelier than the ground stuff, and packed with goodness.



Use it to make curries, soups, pickles, juices, and all sorts of other dishes sing. Be careful while preparing – the juice can stain.

Cooking

Depending on how tender it is, you may want to scrape off the skin before use. As a rough rule of thumb, 1 inch of fresh turmeric (or 1 tablespoon freshly grated) equals 1 teaspoon ground turmeric. Chop or grate as desired, and add to curries, soups, and even juices.

Storage

Keep in the fridge, or freeze.
