Frontier Co-op's Ground Cumin Seed is made from high quality seeds and delivers authentic cumin flavor. Cumin seed (cuminum cyminum) is the second most popular spice around the world, ranked just below black pepper. It has been used by the Egyptians since around 5000 B.C. to season meats, fish, and stews. Today, cumin seed is very popular in Middle Eastern, Indian, and Mexican cuisines. Cumin seeds look similar to caraway seeds and feature a warm, strong, and nutty aroma.
Frontier Co-op's ground cumin delivers a sharp and earthy flavor with a pungent aftertaste. Ground cumin seed is known for its versatility and importance in many dishes. Aside from being an essential ingredient in curries and chili con carne, cumin has long been used to soften the 'heat' of sauces, fiery chilis, soups, stews, and more! It also adds warm and earthy flavors to many savory dishes. Use it to enhance meat and vegetable dishes, and cheeses, too. Ground cumin seed pairs well with coriander, chilies, and fresh herbs.
This ground cumin is sourced from India and Turkey where the most flavorful cumin is grown. This product has no artificial additives or chemicals.
Best Uses: Chili, soups, stews, curries, garam masala
