Cumin Seed - Toasted

Cuminum cyminum
Cumin has a rich and savory base flavor, with hints of citrus and pine. When toasted, cumin seed loses some of its bitter pungency, and the earthier notes are enhanced, resulting in a pleasing, well-balanced flavor. This seed spice has been cultivated since ancient times. As toasted cumin loses flavor very quickly when ground, we strongly recommend that you purchase this product whole and grind at home.

Toasted cumin is great with chocolate! I make chocolate sauce with tahini, honey, cocoa powder, ground toasted cumin and hot water.
