What is Turmeric Longa?

\n

Turmeric longa is a variety of turmeric that is distinguished by its pale yellow flowers. This variety is commonly used in phytotherapy.

\n

Used in cooking, it is excellent in taste and health.

\n

Turmeric is extracted from the rhizome of a tropical plant of the same family as ginger. It has a spicy and peppery taste. It is most often sold as a powder, but it can be consumed fresh. Some people call it Indian saffron, although it has the same color, its taste is very different and so is its price.

\n

The harvest of turmeric

\n

The harvest of turmeric rhizomes begins when the stems start to dry, 7 to 8 months after planting. The rhizomes are then removed from the ground and left to rest for a few hours to stabilize their moisture content before being sorted and cleaned.

\n

The turmeric is then sold as is, or dried and ground to obtain turmeric powder. The turmeric powder selected by David Vanille comes from harvests in southern India or Madagascar.

The origins of turmeric

\n

Originally from the south or south-east of Asia, it has been cultivated since ancient times in India and Madagascar.

\n

The first traces of its existence are difficult to define, but it is frequently mentioned in Sanskrit literature from the 4th century AD. It seems to have been known in China before the 7th century AD, and has been known in the West since antiquity.

\n

In the 18th century, it was called Terra merita, Saffron Bourbon or Indian saffron and was imported into Europe by the great naval powers. It was then used both for dyes and in medicine. Turmeric was brought to Europe from India, where it is sacred.

Other uses of turmeric

\n

Important: Note, however, that our bodies have a hard time taking in all the curcumin in turmeric by simply ingesting it. Thus, to assimilate the Curcumin from my Curcuma Longa and for the effects to be much more powerful, simply mix your quality turmeric with the oil of your choice (Colza, rich in omega or other) and add some Black Pepper from Brazil (piperine) or cinnamon powder.

\n

How to use turmeric powder in cooking?

\n

Turmeric powder can be used in both sweet and savory recipes.

\n

It is also one of the ingredients of Ayurvedic Tchai, a vegetable milk known for its benefits on the body.

\n

Turmeric is used in the composition of curry and its West Indian ancestor, colombo, to which it gives its beautiful color. It is also one of the many spices used in Maghrebian cuisine and is notably part of the famous mixture called ras-el-hanout.

\n

Added to the cooking water, it will subtly color and flavor rice and pasta. It goes very well with legumes, especially lentils. Used as a natural coloring agent under the name of E100, you can add it to any dish to which you want to give a nice yellow color.

Our recipe ideas with turmeric longa powder

\n

Would you like to discover the unique flavor of my turmeric longa powder? Here are 3 succulent and easy to make recipes.

\n

The starter: Creamy turmeric shrimp

\n

A gourmet seafood appetizer to which turmeric powder adds an exotic flavor. Clean your prawns. Brown them for a few seconds on a hot grill. Add salt. Make a seasoned cream with turmeric and a little coconut milk. Place your prawns in the oven in a dish and cover with the sauce. Let it thicken. Once cooked, add a few turns of black pepper. Serve with fresh white bread.

\n

The dish: Fried rice with turmeric

\n

The traditional Chinese dish is revisited here by adding turmeric to give the rice a little spice and color. Cook long grain rice and let it cool. Place it in the refrigerator for two hours. Once the rice is cold, fry some garlic in hot oil. Break 3 eggs and scramble them in the pan with the oil and garlic. Add my turmeric longa and some ground Vietnamese white pepper.

\n

The dessert: Spicy dessert cream

\n

The famous vanilla cream is revisited by simply adding a little turmeric powder. However, be careful not to add too much so as not to break the sweetness of the cream dessert.

\n

How to store turmeric powder?

\n

Like most spices, if you want to keep your turmeric for a long time, I recommend using an airtight container. Choose a place to store it away from light and humidity.
