Organic Turmeric Root€1.80
Steenbergs Organic Turmeric€3.15
Steenbergs Organic Fairtrade Turmeric comes from an organic and Fairtrade co-operative in the Kandy region of Sri Lanka. Turmeric originates from a root, known as the rhizome, Curcuma longa; it looks similar to ginger and galangal. To create turmeric powder, the turmeric rhizomes are lifted, boiled for one hour to fix the colours, dried for 10-15 days then cleaned (called polishing) before being crushed and ground.
The colour of turmeric comes from its natural curcumin colouration, although it’s commonly a bright yellow, it can also be more orange-yellow and almost brown. Fairtrade turmeric has a distinct earthy aroma and a pleasing, sharp, bitter, spicy and lingering depth of flavour.
Steenbergs Organic Rosemary€3.15
Steenbergs Organic Rosemary has that characteristic strong, robust flavour that you expect from great home-grown rosemary. Organic rosemary’s needle-like leaves are very aromatic, with a slightly woody and highly pungent perfume, which is not lost by long cooking. Use Steenbergs organic rosemary in lamb, pork and chicken dishes, giving them a sunny, Mediterranean feel. Organic rosemary is ideal for those wonderfully easy and delicious casseroles with flageolet beans and either chicken or lamb.
