Turmeric is known as the magic spice supplement. It is widely used throughout the world in many dishes especially in Southeast Asia. Of the many spices you can cook with, turmeric just might be the prettiest. Its vibrant yellow color is hard to miss. It colors every meal you put it in. If you see a yellow food item (like boxed mac and cheese) that says it has no artificial flavors, add-ins, or preservatives, odds are turmeric was used to give it a distinct color.
Not only does turmeric look cool, but it also tastes great. It’s rich and earthy and bitter—with a hint of spiciness. It is potent. You don’t need to add much to your recipe to taste it.
