Cooking with fresh turmeric can add mild spice to savory dishes like rice, stews, soups and more. It is also a nourishing drink when combined with milk and a little bit of honey.
Empower Farms is a certified-organic farm that employs staff members and volunteers with disabilities to grow high quality, seasonal roots, fruits and vegetables for CSA boxes that support their South Florida community. Turmeric production is uniquely suited to the skills of Empower Farms’ teammates with disabilities. In order to provide them with fulfilling work, the farm is increasing their turmeric production and expanding sales so that they can share the fruits of their labor.
Empower Farms harvests their organic turmeric within days of shipping so you can enjoy it fresh. This fresh root is a superfood packed with healthy nutrients and is an entirely different experience than the more common dry spice. Mildly spicy and warm, the root is what lends the bright yellow-orange color and pungent flavor to curry. Turmeric has been utilized for thousands of years in South Asia and is thought to have originated in India, which continues to produce the majority of the global supply. Similar to this region, Empower Farms is located in Southern Florida, making it a great place to grow turmeric.

We recommend enjoying your Organic Turmeric fresh, as this is what really sets it apart from the dry spice or store-bought turmeric that may have been stored for many days/weeks before reaching your grocery store shelves. Your turmeric will arrive ripe and ready to consume, and will be best kept loose in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator to preserve the “fresh” quality.
Warning: Turmeric can stain your hands and clothes so we recommend wearing an apron and/or gloves while handling the root. Depending on preference, you can peel the thin layer of skin with a paring knife or vegetable peeler. Grate, chop or slice your turmeric as needed for your recipe. Curry is a sauce, originating from India, that utilizes turmeric combined with other spices and herbs. Curry sauce is used in a variety of dishes, varying based on regional, cultural tradition.
