Frontier Co-op's whole cumin seed (cuminum cyminum) is the second most popular spice in the world, ranked just below black pepper. It's 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. Easily grind the seed in a spice mill or grinder for a fresh, strong flavor, or use the seeds whole in recipes.
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. Cumin seed pairs well with coriander, chilies, and fresh herbs.
Frontier Co-op's organic cumin is sourced from India and Turkey where the most flavorful cumin is grown.
Suggested uses: Chili, soups, stews, curries, garam masala
