Burlap and Barrel Blue Turmeric

Blue Turmeric is rare species of turmeric that’s different from the standard yellow/orange Curcuma longa. It’s typically used for medicinal applications throughout Vietnam, but we’re partial to its menthol, pine-y aroma, with a flavor that’s earthy, savory and beautifully bitter.

It adds a complexity, depth and flavor that’s difficult to define but reminiscent of carrots, walnuts and celery — and a little bit goes a long way.

Use it to enhance vegetable stews, curries and soups, to brighten starches like rice and potatoes, and to balance sweetness in cocktails.

This is the turmeric that will blue your minds 🙂
