This is the turmeric that will blue your minds 🙂

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.

Cooking Suggestions

– Sprinkle a little bit into salad dressing to add depth and complexity and balance acidity

– A hot water infusion with honey makes a perfect digestive beverage or simple syrup to balance sweetness in cocktails
