Description:

The flavor of Cumin plays a large part in Indian, Mid Eastern, North African and Mexican cooking. Cumin is a seed from a low growing bush that grows to about one to two feet tall. The seeds are 1/8-1/4 inches long with a striped pattern and are brown in color. The seeds are boat-shaped, tapering at each end, with tiny stalks attached. Similar in looks to Caraway seeds, Cumin seeds are lighter and their flavor is strong, warm and slightly bitter. A great source of Iron, Cumin has been used medicinally as a diuretic, carminative, stimulant, astringent and antispasmodic. Ancient lore cited that Cumin kept chickens and lovers from wondering. Cumin is used in many ethnic cuisines and is a critical ingredient of chili powder. Also found in Achiote blends, garam masala, curry powder and baharat. Ground Cumin is stronger than whole seeds and is used mainly where highly spiced foods are preferred.
