From an original idea here


    Turmeric is a spice with a strong, earthy flavour that's often used in curries and other Indian dishes. It has received a lot of attention for its content of the powerful anti-inflammatory nutrient curcumin. Turmeric is effective at reducing the inflammation related to arthritis, diabetes and other diseases.


    nothing to do with a seeded turmeric loaf!
    But I happened to see some yellow crocus yesterday, very similar to these … 
    Spring is coming !

    All the best Jan

    I use turmeric in soups. That yellow bread looks really good. Does it taste good as well?

    I've not have turmeric before.

    Mary Kirkland said...

    I'd have to leave the turmeric out since I don't like the flavor.

    Hello Catarina, it is a nice savoury loaf and a little butter, e.g. Kerrygold, on a slice is tasty too :)

    Many thanks for both your comments.
    This is more of a savoury loaf, and many enjoy it sliced with a little butter (like Kerry gold) spread on it.
    If you do try it please let us know what you think …

    All the best Jan
