We’re proud of every single one of the many spices that we have on our range, and our whole cumin seeds are no exception. They bring a strong, earthy aroma to any dish that you use them in, and they’re sure to make your food all the more enticing.
To use our potent and wonderful whole cumin seeds, we recommend gently toasting them in a neutral oil for a few seconds until they become aromatic. From that point, you can allow the flavor to infuse into the oil and add those little bombs of flavors to your food. Alternatively, whole seeds are best left unground when they’re added to soups and stews. Leaving spices and herbs whole while a soup gently simmers ensures that you’ll get a delicious and wonderful aroma and flavor base perfect for any garnishes that you might add later.
If you enjoy the flavor of cumin in a dish, we’re sure you’d love our whole cumin seeds along with a whole host of our other products which pair marvelously with the earthy spice. Some great examples include our coriander and our bay leaves, which would combine with the cumin to form a decadent, rich, and gently spiced flavor mix perfect for a warming stew in wintertime.
