Cumin is considered a warming spice. It is not truly “spicy,” but it warms in a similar way that cinnamon does. It is used extensively in Indian cooking, as well as Latin cooking. The spice is best used whole or freshly ground for maximum flavor. The whole seeds can be toasted or bloomed in ghee to release the flavor. Use cumin with all sorts of meat or vegetable dishes, as well as cream sauce, salad dressing, and summer beverages. Cumin pairs well with coriander, other warming spices, chilies, and fresh herbs.
These all-natural and gluten free cumin seeds boast a range of vitamins and minerals such as iron, manganese, copper, calcium, vitamin B1, and phosphorus.
The seeds have been long associated in traditional medicine as helping aid in digestion and more recently have been looked at for containing potentially anti-carcinogenic properties.
