Creuset and turmeric?

qwerty78 Nov 12, 2012 10:57 AM

Hi all- I'm slowly acquiring more creuset cast iron, but I'm hesitant to cook with turmeric? Has anyone tried? Was there staining? I have a fair amount of stainless so I have other pans to use but the cast iron seems great for chicken curry

    Turmeric stains everything. It is used as a dye since ancient time. I have not used turmeric on a Le Cresuset, but I have used turmeric on other enameled cast iron cookware. Staining is normal, but eventually it will come off. It won't stay on forever.

      I use it all the time in my curries and pilafs I cook in my Le Creuset and I've never had it stain.
