Ird |እርድ| Wild Turmeric
Brundo’s Ird (Ethiopian Tumeric) is characterized by poignant tones that are a staple in Eastern African cooking.
The pungent and earthy-bitter root has a distinct flavor that is commonly used to enrich alicha recipes and other mild stews and sauces.
Apart from its culinary uses, turmeric’s powerful anti-inflammatory agents have long been used for medicinal purposes including aiding digestion, cleansing the skin, and more.
Fun Fact: This naturally occurring “food dye” is responsible for the yellow-orange appearance of most Ethiopian dishes.
Ingredients: Dried and powdered Ird (Ethiopian turmeric root)
