Wild Mountain Cumin from Burlap & Barrel | 1.5 oz glass jar
2023 Burlap & Barrel
"Our Wild Mountain Cumin has a savory, penetrating aroma and bright, umami flavor. The tiny, oblong black seeds are hand-picked by foragers in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan. Botanically distinct from common cumin, our Wild Mountain Cumin is renowned in Afghanistan and throughout central and south Asia for its delicious flavor as well as its medicinal properties. It has a savory, penetrating aroma and bright, umami flavor evocative of grilled meats and sweet caramelized onions.
The seeds are smaller and softer than the cumin you may be used to, and they do not need to be ground before use."
