Turmeric is the underground stem (or rhizome) of the plant Curcuma longa of the ginger family. Fresh turmeric rhizomes look very much like ginger with a hint of orange on the skin. Upon slicing, it becomes apparent why turmeric is called the Golden Spice or Indian Saffron. A fiery, almost fluorescent orange, fresh turmeric has an earthy, peppery and vibrant aroma and flavor.

Most turmeric, however, is consumed in powdered form, in which it also has a slightly bitter and mustard-like smell. You can find it in grocery stores in the ethnic aisles or Indian, Nepalese and Pakistani food stores (although see note on lead contamination below). Fresh turmeric can be spotted at some health food, Thai and Indonesian shops. Ground turmeric can be stored away from light in an airtight container for about a year without a significant loss in freshness and aroma. Fresh turmeric root should be stored in the fridge for 1-2 weeks or frozen for longer periods.
