Industry Knowledge: Cumin is the seed of a small plant in the parsley family. It was used 5000 years ago by the Egyptians as both a spice and an ingredient in the mummification process. The Greeks and Romans also used cumin and highly regarded it as one of the essential spices. In the Middle Ages cumin seed was thought to promote love and fidelity, so it was carried by attendees of weddings, and soldiers were always sent off to battle with a fresh loaf of cumin seed bread. Pungent, sharp, and slightly sweet, the greenish brown powder of this herb is an essential ingredient in Mexican and Indian cuisine. Add to cooking in moderation; the pungency of cumin can overwhelm other flavors in a dish.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
Cumin is top quality, I found a pack from a year back which had gotten misplaced during my move - and it's still fresh...!
Fresh and good quality
very good quality and fresh
These are the proper cumin seeds for Indian cooking. They have a good pungency and aroma either when roasted and ground or used in a "tarka". As good as anything I have previously bought in India and obviously more convenient
