Tumeric root is one of our favourite spices to cook with, fresh or ground. It has a dry, slightly astringent flavour and a rich yellow hue. It's what gives curry powders their colour. As well as being delicious, it also has anti-inflammatory properties. Tumeric is reputed to improve a range of digestive complaints and skin ailments. Our new favourite way to get a dose of the good stuff is in a tumeric latte. We make our own blend of tumeric, ginger and other spices and blend it with almond milk (or cow's milk or soy if you prefer) for a non-caffeinated pick-me-up. Give it a try.
