turmeric

Turmeric is associated with the element of fire. It is used to treat many inflammatory diseases including arthritis and heart disease. It has a bright yellow color and peppery flavor that is delicious and attractive added to rice dishes and sauces. Turmeric is a natural food dye that can be used to dye eggs, and deepen the yellow of cheese dishes and is what makes mustard so very yellow. It is also used in curry.

In magic, turmeric can be used for purification. Keep in mind that it stains!
