  • Cumin - Whole


Essential Pantry Whole Cumin Seeds

2 oz. - Morocco

This whole cumin is grown in the fertile valleys to the west of Marrakech, between Chichaoua and Essaouira on the Atlantic Coast, and it is some of the most flavorful cumin in the world. It has a spicy-sweet aroma, and a pungent, powerful, sharp flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Along with coriander and anise, cumin is one of the most essential spices in the Moroccan kitchen. 

Easy to grind in your coffee bean grinder.

EP Cumin
This cumin is heads above any I've had. I toasted it in a dry cast iron skillet then ground it with mortar and pestle, and by then the fragrance is making me swoon. It has a much richer flavor than what I have had previously, and that is magnified when it has a chance to develop in a recipe. Because it is so full flavored, you need a bit less, but so good you will want to use more! I put a large pinch in vinaigrette, a secret ingredient that surprises and is a wonderful addition. Also great to toast with mixed nuts for cocktails.
