About Cumin Seeds, Ground

Product Info:
Cumin (Cuminum Cyminum) is the seed of a small annual herb. The plant grows to about one foot in height and has flowers which range in color from pale pink, to white, to lavender. Cumin is parchment colored, hard and angular in shape. Ground Cumin is a very easy way to add the mildly hot and sweet flavor of the Cumin seed to dishes. Cumin has long been grown in numerous regions of the world; including India, Egypt, Arabia, and the Mediterranean regions. 

Suggested Use:
Cumin is wonderful in bean soups and vegetable stews. Adding Cumin to cooking rice or couscous imparts a warm flavor and aroma. It makes a wonderful dip when mixed with mayonnaise. Cummin is an integral part of Indian spice blends for making curries and other spicy dishes.


Basic Prep:
Ready to use. Just add to recipe. Primarily added to minced meat, vegetables, stews, and chili.

    Ground Cumin

    Posted by Allen Farlow on 31st Jul 2023

    This was my first spice we tried, from Spices for Less. I have to say, opening the envelope and taking a whiff brought tears to my eyes and cleared the nasal cavity! My FORMER spice vendors cumin just barely had a smell, Wow, is this fresh and worth the reasonable price. Needless to say our Southwest beef dish was a hit. Spices For Less is now the go to vendor. Thank you.
