An essential spice in cuisines around the world, cumin’s nutty flavor brings richness and earthiness to dishes. Indigenous to the Old Persian Empire, black cumin is virtually unknown outside of the Middle East. Our Cumin is grown wild along the foothills of the Hindu Kush mountains in Afghanistan, the mountainous terroir adds an extra layer of sharp earthy and piney flavors to our black cumin spice. The intoxicating and aromatic Afghan Black Cumin will take you on a culinary journey from Indian dishes like malai kofta to Mexican favorites like chicken fajitas. Hand harvested by women and men in the mountain villages, we are furthering our social mission to provide economic development through the creation of additional agricultural jobs.
