Fresh turmeric has vibrant orange flesh with an earthy, peppery, slightly citrusy flavour. It’s brighter and livelier than the whole ground stuff, and packed with goodness. This colourful root brings an exotic dimension to your cooking; use to pep up juices, soups, curries, dals and chutneys.

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.

Country of origin

Produced in Peru.

Grower Info

For over 30 years, ProNatura have been coordinating production and providing support for small-scale organic farmers – initially in their native France, and now further afield in Morocco, Togo, Burkina Faso and more (where the growers are also Fairtrade). They offer all sorts of expert advice and resources: from practical and financial support in becoming organically certified, and help promoting soil fertility and choosing the best varieties to grow in each region, to assistance in storing and packaging the final results.

Their fresh fruit has been such a smash hit at Riverford that Guy even went out to Togo to meet ProNatura’s organic, Fairtrade pineapple growers for himself – see more in this video.
