New Harvest Turmeric - 1.9 ounces
1.9 ounces in a glass jar
This special turmeric is grown organically in southern India. It has a sweet, floral flavor and a high curcumin content that makes it both delicious and therapeutic. (100% lead-free.) Burlap & Barrel is a New York-based spice company working towards ending inequality and exploitation in food systems that disenfranchise skilled farmers.
This bright yellow spice gives traditional curries their color. Add it to lattes and bone broth for its healing properties. Its powerful anti-inflammatory compounds are activated in the presence of fat or black pepper.
Meet the Farmer: Burlap & Barrel's turmeric is grown by Dr. Salunkhe, a naturopathic and Ayurvedic doctor, doctor of pharmacology and passionate advocate for organic agriculture. The plant is grown organically and irrigated primarily with rainwater, which helps reduce the farm's water consumption and intensifies the turmeric's flavor. Before harvest, it is cured in the soil, turning the skin tight and glossy and concentrating the sweet flavor. The care Dr. Salunkhe takes at every step of the process is one of the reasons his turmeric is so exceptional.
