    This blue beauty is a crowd favorite.  Despite lacking the traditional orange color associated with turmeric, this variety does contain some curcuminoids, along with a handful of other active compounds including camphor, which gives its intense flavor.  Due to its strong flavor, it is not typically used in cooking.  Instead, it is mainly used topically in tinctures and poultices.  It is documented to have a number of therapeutic properties including anxiolytic, antimicrobial, antiulcerogenic and antioxidant properties among others as well as being a smooth muscle relaxant.  We are learning more about this somewhat mysterious variety, and are curious what uses you have for it.
