Turmeric’s botanical properties
Where does this delicious rhizome come from?Turmeric is a magnificent yellowy orange rhizome which comes from a tropical plant from the same family as ginger. Its production process is long and tricky. First it is cleaned and chopped, then boiled to remove its skin, then it is peeled and dried and finally ground to produce a powder or flakes. Our French turmeric grows in Guadeloupe on Didier’s farm, who we believe to be the first producer of French turmeric. This turmeric is grown in compliance with agroforestry principles, in the midst of a glorious Garden of Eden, full of fruit trees, vanilla plants and animals. Our French turmeric is of outstanding quality with amazing aromas. Harvested between March and May, Didier’s turmeric is thicker and denser than the other turmerics we sell.
Turmeric is considered to be a holy spiceTurmeric is used as a spice. It was traded on the spice routes between East and West during Ancient times. It is used in spice blends in India, the West Indies, Nepal, Thailand or North Africa in dishes such as curry, tandoori, Vadouvan, Colombo and raz-el-Hanout. It is also used as a food colouring and was formerly used for painting. It was used to dye Buddhist monks’ robes; as it produced a rich saffron colour representing the road to Nirvana. In Mauritius and India, brides use turmeric to purify their face and body before the wedding ceremony.
