Spicy Saturday: Cumin

Spicy Saturday: Cumin

It is #spicysaturday and today we are going to discuss: Cumin⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Native to the Egyptian Nile Valley, Cumin Seeds are now also grown in several hot regions in China, India and Turkey. In our ongoing effort to satisfy the most discerning home chefs we have searched out the highest oil content in our Cumin that we can find. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

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 worldwide, 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.⠀

Cumin is used in several dishes such as Yogurt Dressing, Lentil Stew, Roasted Cauliflower, Chicken Tagine, Grilled Lamb, Chutney and of course Chili👌⠀

Cumin works well in combination with allspice, anise, brown mustard seed, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, fennel, fenugreek, garlic, ginger, nutmeg, paprika, turmeric and yellow mustard seed.⠀⠀
