Fresh turmeric has a mild, yet spicy-sweet, earthy, and citrus-like flavour, with a bright golden-orange flesh. Use a spoon to peel its skin and then finely chop, grate, or zest it into dishes such as curries, stir fries, soups, salads, sauces, and dressings.  Fresh turmeric is milder in flavour than dried turmeric powder but can be substituted using a 1-to-3 ratio. Approximately 1 teaspoon of dried turmeric is equal to 3 teaspoons of fresh turmeric. Fresh turmeric adds a brightness and flavour complexity when used in smoothies, hot drinks, or even lattes. We source certified organic turmeric from Fiji, as it is not currently grown in NZ.
