A close relative to ginger, turmeric (Cucuma longa) depends on the tropical climate of Java to develop a sweet and floral character without the metallic musky flavor of some turmerics. Spice Tribe’s Java Turmeric is grown in naturally rich soil using organic methods which help to maintain a 4-8% curcumin content. The turmeric is cleaned, sliced and sun-dried on site, and ground in nearby Bali. Popular when combined with black pepper as an anti-inflammatory, we use turmeric in curries, golden milk concoctions and even in baked goods to offer an earthy undertone and slight spicy note.
