Turmeric has recently become extremely popular due to our renewed understanding of it's extraordinary health benefits. It is appreciated the world over for its colour and flavour, but most recently in the west, we have become fascinated by it's healing properties. Its most active compound curcumin has many scientifically-proven health benefits, and is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. There is much research to suggest that it may also help improve symptoms of depression and chronic fatigue, allergies, eczema and asthma and its potential to have beneficial effects on heart disease is being closely studied. Those with Arthritis and even Cancer have also claimed to experience beneficial effects form adding turmeric to their diet.
Unfortunately, dealing with fresh turmeric is difficult. It is difficult to find good quality, fresh clean rhizomes and preparing them for use is an art. The dark yellow to sometimes dark orange natural colour stains absolutely everything! Do not be tempted to eat it raw - you will end up with neon yellow teeth!
Given that we know it would be great to get turmeric into our food, but that it is difficult to handle, we have done all the work for you. We take the best turmeric we can find (we only buy it at the market when it is in really good condition) and prepare it for you. As was done for centuries, we have blended it with Sea Salt to preserve it, and then gently dried it to ensure longevity, whilst maintaining its flavour integrity.
Add it wherever you would add salt, and know you are sprinkling in goodness on everything you eat. Particularly great in curries and tagines, but also gives great colour and flavour to roasted chicken and cauliflower!
Team it up with lime and Pomegranate salt for a Persian vibe.
Remember - we use glass packaging and easy to remove stickers, so that you can reuse the jar. and just so you feel even more virtuous, we give 25p from every jar sold to Parley for the Oceans to be a part of cleaning up our seas, not filling them with plastics. We hope you agree that this is a good thing :)
BTW...check out the last image - we can package two or three salts together as a single gift, a great present for the tricky buy-for foodie! just message us and we will gift wrap for free!
