Turmeric or "country saffron"!

The Sacred History of Turmeric

Originally from Southeast India, it is widely cultivated in Asia and Africa. In Reunion Island, "country saffron" is inseparable from caris, traditional dishes that are highly fragrant, where it shines with a thousand lights and virtues.

Turmeric is considered a sacred spice

In Mauritius and India, the future bride smears her face and body with turmeric as a purification ritual. In the past, turmeric was used as a dye for monks' robes. For Buddhists, the saffron color symbolizes the path to Nirvana. Turmeric is used as a spice; it is commonly used in spice blends like curry or massalé, but it also serves as a food coloring and was once used in paint.

Turmeric Manufacturing Method

Turmeric is a rhizome with a magnificent orange-yellow color, with peppery and musky aromas. It comes from a tropical plant in the same family as ginger.

A lengthy process: after cleaning and cutting it, it is boiled to remove its skin, then once peeled and dried, it is ground into powder.

Turmeric is used in many spice blends from Indian, Caribbean, Nepalese, Thai, or North African cuisine: curry, tandoori, Vadouvan, colombo, ras el hanout. It has been traded on the spice route between East and West since ancient times.
