Spices: Blue Turmeric

Out of stock

Description: This is the turmeric that... blue our 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.

Origin: Cao Bằng, Vietnam
Aliases: Nghệ djen, black turmeric, kali haldi, kala haldi, black zedoary
Processing: Sliced, then sun-dried
Ingredients: Blue turmeric powder (Curcuma caesia)
Tasting Notes: Menthol • Bitter melon • Pinecones

Sprinkle a little bit into salad dressing to add depth and complexity and balance acidity. Add to a vegetable stew or soup to accentuate the green vegetable flavor and add complexity similar to the flavor of celery, carrots and spicy olive oil. A hot water infusion with honey makes a perfect digestive beverage or simple syrup to balance sweetness in cocktails

Burlap & Barrel

Burlap & Barrel is building new international spice supply chains that are equitable, transparent and traceable. We connect­ smallholder spice farmers to high-value markets, we educate consumers about the impact of product traceability on human rights, and we emphasize unique products with terroir that are grown biodynamically using traditional techniques. We work to end inequality and exploitation in food systems that disenfranchise skilled, serious artisans along the entire chain. Mainstream conversations around food sustainability rarely consider the people involved in growing, harvesting, transporting, processing and cooking food. Sustainability is discussed in terms of environmental impact, or the comfort of livestock providing meat, dairy or eggs. We believe that the standard measures of sustainability must evolve to consider the conditions in which the farmers who drive global food supply chains earn their livelihoods. Single origin ingredients draw attention to the unique environments in which incredible ingredients grow and to the farmers with the expertise and commitment to grow them well.
