Cumin Seed - Powder
Cumin is from the family Apiaceae and is closely related to anise, caraway, coriander, dill and fennel. It is native to the Mediterranean regions and northern Africa, but has been cultivated for thousands of years in the Middle East, India, China and the Mediterranean. Cumin has long been an essential ingredient in cuisines around the world and has only relatively recently become mainstream as a spice in the US. Cumin has a very distinct earthy, nutty and spicy flavor with a warm aroma with hints of lemon.
