A spicy alternative memory

Some are saying it never existed at all, some are saying it's spelled "tumeric", some are saying it's spelled "turmeric" and to cap it all some are saying it's both, with videos proving it.

Stemming from the Ginger plant family, Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in Southeast Asia as an additive in various foods. It also provides a mean line in face packs, according to a few Google search results.

But how can it be spelled correctly both ways, as in the image? It could be a cultural thing, along the lines of Americans using "color" for the British "colour".

In any case, it seems our sturdy little plant has been around long enough not to really care ;-)
