Curcuma... A beautiful flowering plant. When the leaves start to turn brown cut off the root, let it dry a little and and you have turmeric root. My husband bought this plant for me at Home Depot and I never knew until I saw the name and remembered that turmeric comes from curcumin. Pretty awesome don’t you think? It might not be a food pic but there is so much more to life then just food so I thought I would share. Especially when it involves a superfood root with so many health benefits.
