Turmeric-Curcuma longa and why you should be using it.

This spice is pretty amazing. From helping arthritis to helping with some cancers.  It is really easy to get this into your diet, You can take supplements or add it to food dishes. It is great in just about any savory dish. I add it to just about all soups, egg salad, meatloaf, Spanish rice and you can make Curries or other Indian dishes. It gives a good flavor and a pretty yellow color. When I add it to my chicken or turkey gravy, it makes it look so yummy.
