Turmeric is native to Asia; it's a perennial plant with roots or tubers that grows to a height of about 3 feet and has yellow flowers. The root is bright-orange with a thin brownish skin. The rhizomes provide the spice. Turmeric belongs to the same family as ginger and is also known as Indian saffron.
The plant was called Indian saffron during the Middle Ages because of its orange-yellow color. The dye is used to color cosmetics, foods, confectionery, fabrics and paper. Turmeric oil can stain light colored clothing so be sure to dilute it well.
