Product Description - Starwest Botanicals Organic Cumin Seed Bulk 1lb.
Organic Cumin Seed Whole
Cumin seeds come from the herb known by the Latin name of Cuminum cyminum which grows native from the Mediterranean all the way to India. We offer this spice in both whole and powdered forms, as well as organic and kosher styles. Cumin seed is probably best known as an ingredient used in a variety of Mexican recipes.
Roasts can be spiced with cumin seed. It can be combined with fruit and sweet-flavored root vegetables and used to season a pork or beef roast. Chili typically uses cumin spice to flavor the beans and meat. To add a spicy accent to hot dishes that feature chili peppers, you can mix cumin seed powder with sour cream to use as a garnish on hot food. The sour cream, or any dairy product, will subdue the heat of the chili peppers if they begin to burn your tongue and makes eating the dish more enjoyable.
Salads get a flavor boost with the addition of cumin seed powder. You can make a salad that features corn, beans, cheese, and add some chicken to it, then pour over it an oil and vinegar dressing that has cumin added.
If you like to barbecue, you will certainly want to keep a spice rub on hand for flavoring meats for the grill. You can make a wonderful spice rub using cumin, onion and garlic powders, paprika, garlic and other seasonings that you like, and use it to rub into chicken or pork meat.
Rice and bean dishes can be seasoned with whole cumin seed. To turn it into a vegetarian main dish, beans may be added. Black beans are particularly flavorful. Dried pinto beans can be purchased in bulk and cooked very inexpensively in a slow cooker, and seasoned with cumin to make wonderful refried beans. Whole spice seeds can be quickly toasted in a warm fry pan over low heat, which helps to release the flavor and aroma in the seeds.
