Cumin Seed

Cumin Seed is a widely used spice in Indian, Middle Eastern, North African, Mexican and Southwest American cooking. It has a pungent warm flavor. It is a seed from a low growing bush. Physically the seed resembles Caraway though the flavor is quite different.

Cumin is an important ingredient in Indian and Pakistani Curry Blends. It is also used quite heavily in North African dishes, such as Couscous.

Cumin is an essential ingredient in Mexican, Southwestern and other Latin American and South American cuisines.  Combine with ground Chile Peppers and other spices and herbs to season taco meat, carne asada, enchiladas, refried beans and tamales.  It also blends well with certain cheeses.

Roasting your cumin seeds provides a nutty flavor which is preferred in some recipes.

We also carry Ground Cumin.

We have a Basmati Rice Pilaf recipe which uses whole Cumin Seed.  It is the perfect compliment to many Mediterranean and Indian dishes.
