Try here - they have loads of fascinating stuff including fresh veg. Morrisons in WK used to stock it, but don't any longer - you may even find it in Morrisons New Brighton

erm... no.
it's a spice used in cooking in primarily Asian and middle-eastern dishes.

The "International" on Oxton Road will probably have it, they've got everything else but that's one thing I haven't actually looked for. It's like Aladdins cave in there for herbs and spices.

Sorry to go off topic but my sister in law who is a nurse told me about a friend of hers who had a diabetic patient with such bad ulcers that they were talking about amputating her leg. She refused and treated the ulcers herself with turmeric (presumably fresh not powdered) and it healed and saved her leg.
