Cumin (pronounced "comein") is the pale green seed of Cuminum cyminum, a small herb in the parsley family. Cumin is frequently used in Mexican dishes such as chili con carne and hot tamales. Cumin has a distinctive, slightly bitter yet warm flavor.

For a change of pace, try ground Cumin added to tangy lime or lemon based marinades for chicken, turkey, lamb, and pork. Or, add Cumin to chili, spicy meat stews, barbecue marinades, and sauces. Stir toasted Cumin into corn muffin batter to create an easy south of the border accent. Heat Cumin and garlic in olive oil and drizzle over cooked vegetables or potatoes. Ground Cumin is stronger than the whole cumin seed. The Cumin flavor is accentuated by toasting.

Our cumin is high in oil and very flavorful. Try some in your favorite chili recipe, or any Mexican dish.
