Stealthy Cooking Tip: Turmeric imparts a deep yellow or orange color to foods. Incidentally, it stains clothing yellow, too - so wear an apron when cooking with it. Health wise, turmeric's best known qualities are it's anti-inflammatory properties, making it especially appropriate for arthritis, preventing degenerative neurological diseases like Alzheimer's and multiple sclerosis. Turmeric can also be used to increase the yellow color in egg dishes or dressings. If, like me, you don't use it often, remember that most spices don't last forever. Replace your turmeric every year.
