Cumin Seed

Pronounced "kuh-min", Cumin has an unmistakable flavor that is spicy-sweet, aromatic and somewhat bitter undertones. Cumin has only recently begun to be recognized as a popular spice in this country, but world wide, it is one of the most consumed spices right behind chiles and pepper. For cooks in Central America, the Far East, Mexico, the Middle East and North Africa, cumin seed has long been a signature spice and is a key ingredient in curries, Garam Masala blends, Coucous and many bean, meat and rice dishes.

Native to the Egyptian Nile Valley, Cumin Seeds are now also grown in several hot regions in China, India and Turkey.
