Turmeric is a perennial plant and is a member of the Curcuma botanical group, which is part of the ginger family of herbs. The root is brightly coloured and stains yellow which has been used for centuries as a dye in textiles and skin brightening. We love to use it in our smoothies, lattes, cheesecakes, dressings, and curries.
