AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO HATES TURMERIC?

monavano | Oct 30, 201109:44 AM

I know turmeric is supposed to be loaded with good stuff, and I love the color it imparts to food, but gosh, it has an off-putting flavor!
I have a bag of turmeric from Penzey's that let's just assume is good quality, and it's not old, but I hate the flavor. It's bitter to me. Metallic, even.
I made a cauliflower soup yesterday that just cried out for a dash of turmeric to make it a gorgeous color. It was all I could do to add all the cheese in my fridge to get the soup past the turmeric yuck!
Anyone else hate it?
