The 35 g Organic Ground Cumin by La Caravane des Épices is organically grown and certified under IFS and Ecocert standards. Packaged in France, this product is made entirely from natural ingredients. Originally from the Mediterranean Basin, cumin has become an essential ingredient in cooking worldwide. The ancient world believed cumin had the power to chase away evil spells: the seeds watched over the tombs of the pharaohs in the Egyptian pyramids. The Romans had their slaves guard these precious seeds.
Cumin has a powerful, warm, lemony and slightly aniseed-scented aroma. It can be enjoyed in a chili con carne, an Indian curry, a lamb tagine or homemade bread. When ground, cumin can be easily added to sauces and spice mixes.
