It’s widely-acknowledged that turmeric is steeped in health-giving properties, but it’s not always an easy spice to cook with. Poor quality turmeric can be astringent and overly bitter. It might just about behave in a curry, but when large quantities of turmeric are used in health food adaptations (think turmeric latte, turmeric smoothie etc) it can be pretty bitter and, well, hard to swallow!
It’s part of the reason why we created a Golden Blend. Our Indian Turmeric is so peppery and bright. It’s balanced with Sri Lankan Cinnamon for sweetness and a tiny kick from ground peppercorns. We’re particularly proud of the Golden Blend for being awarded a prestigious star in The Great Taste Awards too.
It’s a real treat to cook with (add a dash to a carrot cake or muffin mixes and you won’t regret it!) but our favourite way with Golden Blend is to stir a little into porridge. This Golden Porridge recipe couldn’t be easier, it’s super-healthy and will really help you attack the day. ‘Baby Spice’ also started weaning with a Golden Porridge and has continued to devour bowlfuls – so it’s a great way to introduce new flavours to a toddler’s diet too.
