Another relative of ginger, turmeric is as important medicinally as it is in cooking. Fresh turmeric is a revelation to those who have only experienced turmeric in its dry form. It colours food a deep golden hue, and imparts an fresh earthy, gingery fragrance and flavour. Use it in curry and rice dishes, and add it to smoothies for its' considerable health benefits. Keeps well in the fridge for a few weeks, and much longer in the freezer (if stored in the freezer, grate it while still frozen – it turns mushy when thawed).
