Turmeric is typically used in Indian cuisine and as an ingredient in curry powder. It can be used alone or mixed with other spices (cumin or paprika) as a rub or marinade. It has a mild earthy flavor similar to mustard, and is often used solely to add bright color. Add it to soup broth or even lattes.
Use turmeric carefully, as it can stain clothing, hands, utensils or countertops.
