A Seasonal Treasure from Hawaii
Vibrant orange, freshly harvested
Certified organic Turmeric from Kolo Kai Organic Farm, Hawaii.
Originating in India turmeric is used extensively in curries and other signature Indian dishes. It is easily recognizable for its vibrant orange color that stains everything it touches. Recently there have been many studies done on the health benefits of turmeric and lots of people use it on a daily basis for its nutritional values.
Just like fresh ginger, you want to peel the skin, and either grate or chop tumeric into tiny pieces. The fresh rhizomes store well if kept dry in the refrigerator - wipe dry if they are damp, then wrap with a paper towel before placing in a ziplock plastic bag; it will keep for weeks or even months.
In addition to being a unique and delicious addition to several foods, tumeric is known for its properties as an internal antiseptic and antidote to blood poisoning. In traditional folk medicine, the dried root is ground and rubbed on the skin to treat skin diseases; mixed with coconut oil, it speeds the healing of wounds and minimizes scarring.
