Ground Cumin seeds are produced by a delicate annual which grows only in hot climates. Ground Cumin Seed is an extremely pungent spice that should be used with care as it tends to dominate any dish that uses it. Whole cumin seeds are often roasted just before grinding to bring out the flavor. Cumin seed is an ingredient in curry powder and is also popular in Spanish and Mexican cooking. Add to tomato dishes, chili, salsa and in many Indian dishes.

The cumin is great! It has such flavor when put into chili or curry. A little goes a long way, so you don't need much to add that distinctive, smoky flavor.
