What is Cumin Powder?
Cumin has a very distinctive, unique, and strong flavor. Its aroma is due to its essential oil content. A member of the parsley family, Cumin powder comes from the dried seed of the herb cumin cyminum. First found in the Mediterranean, cumin has been used as a spice and a healing agent for thousands of years. In fact, this spicy herb is mentioned in the Bible and has been unearthed in ancient Egyptian tombs. There’s no shortage of delicious, healing history for cumin.(2)
