Cumin Seeds/Jeera: It is one the most widely used spice in Indian cooking.   Mexican cooking and MiddleEastern cooking also use it often. It is also a very important element in Indian and ayurvedic cooking and has been used for millennia. North Indian curries and dry vegetables are mostly flavored with whole cumin seeds.  Cumin is considered to have digestive properties and is also considered to have cooling properties.

Here are a few suggestions how to use organic cumin in cooking:
·          The cumin/jeera seed is almost always exposed to heat to release its wonderful aroma and  flavor.
·          It is also used as a garnishing spice when it is dry roasted and coarsely ground and then sprinkled on yogurt salads/raita, Indian salads or kuchumbers
·          Most of the Indian lentils and beans will have cumin added to them.  It imparts flavor and helps to digest beans and lentils
·          Heat Cumin and garlic in oil or ghee and add vegetables and potato, alternatively drizzle over cooked vegetables or potatoes
·          Add ground Cumin tangy lime or lemon or yogurt marinades for grilling and barbeques
·          Cumin is frequently used in many Mexican dishes including chili con carne and tamales

Cumin seed is used for diarrhea and indigestion. Specific for headaches caused by ingestion.

Our organic spices are pure, all natural spices and seasonings and fair trade spices. Our dedication to sustainable sourcing insures you get ethical clean spices.

Using our in-house kitchen we make all our blends in Minneapolis. We grind the spices that need to be ground, roast the ones that need to be roasted and keep some spices whole that are traditionally whole in ethnic blends. Did you know that cultures did not grind all their spices and most cultures will use both whole and ground spices in their blends?

This ensures that you get the best flavor, color, aroma, and taste.

We're committed to providing pure organic seasonings that taste great and promote a healthy planet. We're proud to offer the largest selection of organic ethnic spices and spice blends available.
