Turmeric, the bright yellow-orange herbaceous plant of the ginger family, is one of the key ingredients in Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian cooking. Used in savory, sweet, or spicy dishes—anything from curry to cake to stir-fry — the pungent golden spice has been prized for millennia as one of the most versatile, flavor-enhancing spices. More than simply a colorful, tasty spice, however, turmeric is also heralded as one of the most powerful medicinal herbs on the planet—with a mind-bogglingly long list of health benefits. Among (many) other things, turmeric serves to: stimulate and strengthen the body’s immune system, relieve arthritis, prevent the growth of cancer cells, reduce cholesterol levels, improve digestion, and support overall brain health.
Needless to say, turmeric is nearly a cure-all—or the closest we’ve come to a panacea! Now… imagine augmenting these already unprecedented health benefits by combining with another substance with potent medicinal properties, all in a convenient package, and in a much more palatable form?
At the Coop, we’re excited to offer our members the benefits of turmeric combined with those of honey — making for a powerful health-boosting golden elixir to have with, well, anything honey goes well with (Tea, toast, yoghurt, goat cheese, chicken, duck pork, etc.)!
