Ground Cumin - 2oz - Morocco

Flown in Freshly Ground
Ground Cumin from the Moroccan Market

It’s a pretty interesting spice. Not only has it been in foods for thousands of years, mentioned multiple times in the Bible, it is reported to have been used for medicinal purposes and for preserving bodies in the mummification process in Ancient Egypt. All this from a tiny, skinny seed.

Cumin (origin -Sumerian - gamun) comes from a flowering plant in the Apiaceae family, commonly known as the family of carrot.

Native from the Mediterranean to India, ours comes from Morocco and the same spice “shop” in the Agora of Casablanca, that our Saffron comes from. Kept handy like salt and pepper by the ancient Greeks, it is still part of the table setting in Morocco today.

When this spice arrived at the warehouse, the shop was instantly filled with the smells of the Agora! Unlike the ground cumin that has been in a jar for who knows how long, this cumin was just ground by hand with a mortar and pestle! This is the way spices are supposed to be.

Use cumin to make your own Ras el Hanout, Garam Masala or add it to your next lamb burger, curried cumin potatoes. If you use black pepper in a recipe, then you can use cumin to change it up.
