Aromatic turmeric is usually grown for therapeutic use only.
Irritative and inflammatory disorders of the colon (colitis, Crohn's disease, IBS) benefit greatly from it. A drop in a tablespoon of carrier oil 3 times a day brings peace, and soothes the inflammation.
Giving dishes unexpected tastes with turmeric is fun. It provides all potato dishes with more taste ... and colour!
Gives any perfume a drier smell (but mind the colour...)
Turmerics are sturdy fellows. They are triploid (3n chromosomes), which demonstrates that they probably derive from hybridisation and crosses that nature thought fun to make throughout History. Its orange to yellow-white flowers are also sterile. Dramatically coming out from the axils of the leaves, they are entertaining, feed the insects but are not used for breeding. Turmeric spread by the spontaneous rooting of rhizomes.
It is fully symbiotic with Humans: we probably just allow it to survive and turmeric offers not only its flower trade, but multi use spice: pigment, digestive, tasty and very powerful in medicine.
These Zingiberaceae (family of cardamom, ginger, zedoary etc.) take their 70-centimetre-large flowers (2.3 ft.) up to 60 centimetres high (1.9 ft.). They do not look spectacular in the middle of the jungle but they hide their beneficial goods underground in their rhizomes. They give out all their wealth if only one bothers come for it.
And they are searched for! Firstly because there are less colon cancer where it is regularly consumed. Ever since ancient traditions in the region, all medicinal systems have highlighted it. It is mixed into an ointment and used on most injuries in India: in a little bit of ghee (clarified butter) and puff, on the wound. It is also burnt so that the smoke can touch one's eyes and thus soothe and improve vision. But we always came back around the digestive system because it surely does wonders in there.
And what a use in the kitchen! Turmeric confers curry its yellow colour. It therefore colours labour rooms in India. Indeed, placenta stores a large amount of turmeric and, when waters break or during childbirth, anything gets yellow as soon as touched by turmeric. Sadhus' and Buddhist monks' costume are stained with curcumin (E 100 on food packaging).
The treasure is in the rhizome. It must be dug up and dried prior to grinding it for its long distillation: 6 to 7 hours!
Confusion is so common, even for manufacturers, that we decided to give you two keys to differentiate the two plants.
Aromatic turmeric: pubescent leaf blade, abaxially only; rhizomes: yellow.
