Humans have been cooking with cumin for over 4,000 years. Native to the Nile Valley, this small brown seed is prominent in North African, Indian, and Mexican cuisine. Cumin seed has a warm, earthy flavor that is quite pungent. The spicy-sweet taste makes it perfect when cooking curries, chilis con carne, or Moroccan couscous. For the best flavor, it’s recommended to dry-roast the seeds before use.
