The first time I came across turmeric powder was when I started cooking Indian dishes. I don’t tend to use a lot of turmeric generally because it is a very strong spice. One dish I have cooked with turmeric is called “orange curry”, and this is just basically orange juice with quite a bit of turmeric in it. To me, it is palate-cleansing. Quite spicy though.
This past week I have got a package of turmeric by IZA Organics to try. We opened it and added it to our stew we were cooking. I can’t use a lot of turmeric in my cooking though due to its very spicy nature. My daughters can’t eat anything spicy – they don’t like it. I think this package will last me a long time because it is a 1 pound package of turmeric. I think it will last me for quite a while. If you tend to use a lot of turmeric, this is a great product for you. My husband says that using turmeric is a cheaper spice than saffron, and it certainly adds a lot of color to the dish. I find it to be very spicy, so a little goes a long way.
