Add the turmeric. You’ll also find recipes that call for various amounts of turmeric. It is a great spice with lots of health benefits for you. It also has a very strong color that can stain anything it comes in contact with; so be careful with it. I find using a smaller amount is best for me. It doesn’t change the color of the completed pickle as much as adding more of it will. Here, I’ve added just a bit of water to my Turmeric to be sure it will dissolve well enough.
