We don't provide any packaging, so you must bring your own container. If you know the exact weight you need, please select "by weight (g)" and enter the number of grams. Alternatively, you can choose to bring your container and simply "fill it up" or fill it "half full" etc. Since all containers vary in size, if you choose one of these options we'll weigh and price your order when you collect it. Your selection helps us estimate how much to bring with us.
Cuminum cyminum is a flowering plant in the Apiaceae family, along with Parsley, Caraway and Dill. Native to a broad territory from the Middle East to India, Cuminum cyminum is an annual herb, with a slender stem, 20–30cm tall, showing long, needle-like leaves and small white or pink flowers.
Cumin seeds have been used, both whole and ground, for thousands of years as an aromatic spice. Cuminum cyminum is today cultivated across the Indian subcontinent, northern Africa, Mexico, Chile and China, and is widely adopted in a broad range of spicy recipes – for example curries and chilli – as well as in pickles and some pastries.
Cumin seeds are aromatic (especially when toasted), earthy and spicy, with a slight bitter sweetness that works well in blends and mixes with Cinnamon and Coriander.
