A Handmade item
Made in Australia

* All Madeit sellers are based in Australia and goods are shipped from Australia.

Hi, I’m Vicki and my small business is named MardiBits. I live on a rural property in Federal Queensland and grow organic Turmeric. We live off-grid, so no electricity bills, yea! My crops are irrigated from a spring dam, and fertilised with composted materials, mainly cow poo! I grow my spice so you are buying local - I don’t know anyone else who can boast that. I stress, this is Australian grown Turmeric and NOT imported.

I sow the rhizomes (part of the plant which grows horizontally underground) in September and harvest 8 to 10 months after planting. Just one crop per year. I set aside a portion of the harvested rhizomes for the next crop so retain the spice’s organic integrity.

To process, I clean then slowly dehydrate (process to remove moisture) the harvested rhizomes and grind them to a powder. For every kilogram (1,000 grams) of harvested raw Turmeric, I yield just 150 grams of powder. Whilst the dehydration process reduces my yield by 85%, it preserves shelf life and intensifies taste - 2.5 grams or 1 teaspoon of my powder is the equivalent of about 20 grams of raw spice, so it’s intense!

I vacuum pack my Turmeric powder in lots of 50 grams, and I have quantities set aside ready to post. Postage is FREE Australia wide.

It is a pure product with no fillers.
It is suitable for cooking and adding to fabulous recipes that you may create such as smoothies, fresh juices, ice cream or even scrambled eggs. Endless ideas.

Turmeric has many wonderful health benefits. Great Anti-inflammatory properties and an excellent anti-oxidant. Wonderful for colds and as the winter is approaching both Turmeric is a very important spice to include in your diet.
