What is turmeric "fingers"?

Turmeric is a spice that is very well known to lovers of Asian flavours. It is found in the famous curry. It can be found in two forms: in powder or in fingers. Turmeric "fingers" is simply the rhizome, that is to say the root of turmeric longa. So today I present you the whole version of this spice.

What does turmeric finger taste like?

Finger turmeric has a slightly peppery yet mild flavour. But above all, this spice is extremely fragrant. There is a slight bitterness at the end, which is not at all disturbing.

The harvest of turmeric "fingers

Cultivated in India since ancient times, turmeric is a plant that has very pretty flowers between pink and purple. This herbaceous perennial plant of the Zingiberaceae family (to which ginger and cardamom belong for example) has rhizomes. It is precisely these roots that we eat. They are in the form of fingers, which explains the name of this spice. The harvest can be operated approximately 7 to 8 months after its plantation. These famous rhizomes are then harvested and marketed in the form of fingers or reduced to powder.

As I mentioned, turmeric is used all over the world. Each country finds a taste interest in it, you only have to eat it once to understand it. If you like fragrant dishes, there is no doubt that you will love turmeric "fingers".
