Toasted Cumin Powder
Rich and slightly bitter, the cumin seeds used for this spice are toasted first to bring out the essential oils. Toasted and ground to order in California. (
Cumin seeds are slowly toasted to unlock essential oils, producing a flavor that’s earthy, rich, sharp, and slightly bitter. This spice is aromatic, so use it in dishes that can stand up to its strong, distinctive flavor, or use sparingly in dishes that need a little something extra.
Cumin has been around forever – it’s mentioned in the Bible, and it’s been found among ancient Egyptian ruins. Today cumin is grown in the Middle East and Mediterranean regions. It's a great source of iron and antioxidants, with purported detoxifying and digestive benefits.
